Police search for suspect in robbery

Police are searching for the man who robbed an 88-year-old Brooklyn Park man after the victim agreed to lend him some money Friday afternoon.

County police said Ernest L. Griffiths of the 400 block of Townsend Ave. was approached near the victim's home about 1:30 p.m. Friday.

Police said the suspect, whom Mr. Griffiths had hired previously to do yard work, asked him if he had any money he could spare.

As Mr. Griffiths was about to hand the suspect $5, the man grabbed on undetermined amount of cash, pushed Mr. Griffiths away and fled the house.

The suspect was described as a white male, 6 feet tall, between 20 and 30 years of age with dark hair and wearing a dark jacket.
