Freiburg (dpa / lsw) – Several strangers surrounded a 94-year-old in Freiburg and stole her handbag from the walker. The woman had visited a cemetery on Thursday evening and was approached on the way back first by an older, then by a younger woman under a pretext, the police said on Friday. The younger woman then followed the woman to a tram stop. Four to five people are said to have surrounded the woman there and stole her bag. Only one passer-by responded to the 94-year-olds’ calls for help. Witnesses of the crime should report to the investigators.
