SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - A 73-year-old woman who tried to help two teenagers was beaten and robbed in return during an attack in the Arden Arcade area.

The Sacramento Bee reports (https://bit.ly/1Cp7zqt ) 18-year-old William Joseph Dexter of Sacramento was arraigned Tuesday on felony charges of robbery, assault with a deadly weapon and elder abuse. His 16-year-old girlfriend is in juvenile hall, facing the same charges.

The victim’s daughter, Sonya Aflleje, says her mother had given the teenage girl and her boyfriend a ride Thursday after the girl asked for help. The teens then beat the woman and robbed her.

They took off running, but 25-year-old Cody Hendrix chased them down. A sheriff’s deputy arrived and arrested the teens.

Aflleje says her mother is recovering from head injuries, cuts to her hand and possible fractures.
