TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Detectives in Tucson have linked four people to two robberies of elderly women and are seeking help finding the suspects.

The Arizona Daily Star reports (https://bit.ly/2bzfxSz ) that a news release from the Pima County Sheriff’s department says an elderly woman had just returned home Sunday night when she was confronted by an armed man demanding money.

The man took her wallet and her credit cards were used within the hour at a Walgreens, CVS and Carl’s Jr. The robber left in a vehicle with two other occupants.

Police say another woman was robbed Wednesday evening while getting her mail. She told deputies two women in a black SUV asked for directions and then the passenger grabbed her purse. Her credit card was used at Walmart a short time later.
