WGN reports Regnier was standing outside her home waiting for her daughter to pick her up for a doctor’s apartment on Wednesday, December 7th, when it became too cold for her so she went back inside.

The man followed her into her home, attacked her, grabbed her purse and fled in a stolen SUV.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Chicago police.

    Useless piece of ship. Bet he has a lengthy criminal record, his family thinks he is a good boy and he’ll resist arrest, get shot and his family will sue the police. Same old…. same old

  • Huh !

    That nice young man looks sooo poor and malnourished… Look at his old worn out clothes …
    I bet he can’t get a good job because of his race, even with his quality prison GED education …
    He just needs that money and car to earn a wholesome living selling drugs and renting girls …
    He wouldn’t do anything mean to anyone if he wasn’t so oppressed for all his life …
    That mean older lady started it when she disrepected him by turning her back to him when she went inside …

    Well the public offenders office of professional liars is already working on his defense. I understand it will go along the lines of “she caused the whole incident because she didn’t just give up her purse when she saw the Negro”. That’s what Jesse and Pfligger think. All crime is because the selfish white people keep their money for themselves.
