An elderly woman was robbed outside a Northlake deli Monday evening, DeKalb County police said.

The 75-year-old Atlanta woman had just placed food from , 4073 Lavista Rd., on the floor of the front passenger's side of her car and was getting into the driver's seat when a man hopped into the back seat just after 6 p.m., the police report said.

The man put an unknown object to the victim's neck and demanded money. The woman gave him $80. The suspect then demanded she drive to an ATM to get more money, the report said. As the car approached Weems Road, the victim told the suspect she didn't have an ATM card or more money with her.

They were approaching the nearby when the suspect noticed a police car, hopped out and ran into the woods near I-285.

The woman was not injured, and she could not provide police with a detailed description of the suspect.

It's a blessing that this woman was not physically injured. I am sure she is suffering emotional harm. Where is the respect for our elderly citizens?
