Robber snatches necklace from woman at Ocoee gas pump, police say

Video captures man robbing, attacking 55-year-old woman

OCOEE, Fla. - Ocoee police are searching for the man they say robbed a woman at a gas pump and dragged her to the ground in the process.


Police said the robbery was caught on video at the Circle K on Franklin Street last week at 3:30 p.m.

Emma Dority, 55, tells Local 6 she walked into the store to pay for her gas, then as she was making her way back to the pump, the man appeared, and pulled on the two gold necklaces that were around her neck.

"I still have a long scratch on my neck," said Dority.

The man then got into a blue Dodge Avenger and started traveling south on H.M. Bowness Road.

The man is described as 5 feet 5 inches tall with a slim build and possibly Hispanic, police said. He was wearing black shorts and a black tank top.

Dority suffered a scratch to her neck from the struggle, police said.
