CHICAGO (AP) - A Chicago man has been ordered held without bail in the beating and robbery of a 94-year-old woman who served in World War II.

Chicago police said Sunday that 26-year-old Olajuwon Claiborne was charged with felony robbery, home invasion and aggravated battery for Wednesday’s attack.

WLS-TV reports (https://abc7.ws/2hAnDN0 ) the woman was waiting outside her home on Chicago’s Southwest Side for one of her daughters to take her to the dentist when she was attacked around 11:50 a.m. and her purse stolen.

The victim’s daughter, Judy Dusk, says her mother suffered broken ribs and a concussion. She was released from the hospital Saturday.

Dusk says her mother is a Navy veteran.

It was unclear whether he had a lawyer who could comment on his behalf.
