According to police reports, when the elderly woman said that she didn’t have much money, the suspect demanded that the woman perform a sex act on him. When she declined, he placed the gun to her head and asked if she wanted to die and then performed the sexual act upon himself.

According to a police statement, when he was finished, he rummaged through the woman’s purse and stole what little cash she had. When the victim started crying, he gave her a tissue.
