OKLAHOMA CITY – Police say a juvenile is in custody after he allegedly mugged an elderly woman outside a metro McDonald's.
It happened around 9:45 Monday morning at the restaurant located at May and Hefner in the Village.
Colleen Godsy showed us the painful bruise on the back of her head.
"Oh, it hurt something bad yesterday," Godsy said.
The 91-year-old said it appeared after the attack.
"All of a sudden, there was this terrible pull on my shoulder, you know? And, it pulled me clear down and hit the pavement. Cup went this way. The arm went this way. The purse went that way," explained to NewsChannel 4. "I was scared. I couldn't figure out what in the world was going on, you know? I thought, 'What's happening to me?'”
Not even an hour after the attack, she said her credit cards were used at a Sonic and Family Dollar on the south side of Oklahoma City.
Now, she is going through the hassle of replacing her cards and IDs, but what she is really upset about is the sentimental things taken from her.
"Like some pictures of my family, my two grandsons and my son and, you know, just pictures I just kept in case anybody would want to see it," Godsy said. "And, I'm always proud to show them."
Police released a picture of a man captured on surveillance video inside the Family Dollar.
While officers investigate, the Godsy family is still coping with what happened.
"The shock and the concern has turned to anger that somebody, that anybody could do something like that to an elderly person for $6.25 and a bunch of credit cards that have been cut off,” said her son, Marcus Godsy. “It's just amazing to me how despicable people can be.”
"I could not be here today," Godsy said. "He could be planning my funeral."
On Tuesday, Del City officers attempted to stop a car that was tailgating a semi-truck through a school zone. The vehicle led police on a short chase before hitting a building.
Two juveniles were taken into custody, and authorities learned that one of the teens had cards belonging to Godsy.
At the time, police believed the cards were simply stolen.
After seeing Godsy's story, an officer determined that the suspect in the car was the suspected mugger. In fact, investigators say he was wearing the same clothes as in the picture.
