UPPER DARBY, Pa. (AP) - Police say a man followed a woman home after she won nearly $7,000 at a Pennsylvania casino, then pushed her to the ground and stole the money.

Thirty-seven-year-old Gary Taylor, of Philadelphia, is jailed on robbery and other charges following the Saturday night incident in Upper Darby.

The Delaware County Daily Times (https://bit.ly/23X2Gww ) reports the woman won $6,692 at Harrah’s Casino in Chester and then stopped at a grocery store on her way home.

That’s where police say Taylor confronted the 59-year-old woman, said “Give me that,” then ripped the purse out of her hand while she had groceries in another.

Police gave police a description of Taylor’s car and they found him a short time later with the cash stuffed into his pants.

Online court records don’t list a defense attorney.
