Woman Robbed at Easton Cemetery

Easton Cemetery, normally a tranquil setting, was the site
of a strong-arm robbery earlier today.
A 40-year-old city woman was reportedly the victim of a strong-arm robbery earlier today while visiting grave sites at Easton Cemetery.

Easton police say that at approximately 12:30 p.m. they were called to the cemetery after the woman was punched by a man who then robbed her of an undisclosed amount of cash. He then fled on foot in an unknown direction, authorities said.

The perpetrator is described as being a white male about 20 years old, approximately 5 foot 6 inches tall, who was wearing a red t-shirt and blue jeans at the time of the incident.

"This investigation is very active, and thus far it does not appear the victim was randomly selected," said EPD Inspector Daniel Reagan. "It is a holiday weekend and nice out, so people are everywhere.  Therefore, I am certain that we will identify the individual responsible for this act."

Anyone with information about the incident is encouraged to call Easton Police at 610-759-2200 or at the Easton Police tip line at  610-250-6635. Callers may remain anonymous.
