Mobile County

MOBILE, Ala (WKRG) – It’s bad enough to be stuck on the side of the road with car trouble. But Mobile Police say two men took advantage of a woman already down on her luck.

Police say the woman was pulled over at Joe Bailey Park on Magnolia because of car trouble when two men came up offering help.

Instead, they spotted a Wells Fargo Bank bag on her seat and decided to rob her instead. Police say one of the men showed her a gun. She told police she threw the money bag at them and they ran away.

Police are still looking for the robbers.
