Mother, daughter charged with mugging elderly woman


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Here at the holidays, a mother and daughter will get to spend some time together... in jail.

Wilmington Police say Marjorie Massey and Latonya Banks teamed up to rob a 76-year-old woman yesterday as she got out of her car at Lowe's near UNCW.

Investigators say one of the women reached inside the car to grab the victim's purse as they asked for directions. The spunky senior grabbed onto one of the suspects as they dragged her across the parking lot until she eventually fell.

Witnesses helped lead cops to their suspects last night.

The victim got nearly all her stolen loot back, including her prized address book.
