Northern York County Regional Police are investigating the Saturday morning robbery of a 64-year-old woman who's bound to a wheelchair.

Police said the North York woman left her home in the 600-block of North George Street around 9 a.m., heading to a senior center on West King Street.

Her purse was hanging on the armrest of her electric wheelchair as she proceeded into the 500-block of North George Street, where a man approached from behind and grabbed the purse from the wheelchair, police said in a news release.

The woman wasn't injured, and the man ran south on North George Street.

The brown purse, which contained cash and other miscellaneous items, was found in the afternoon, minus the cash, police said.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Northern York County Regional Police Department at 292-3647.
