Moultrie - 75-year old Sarah Nash of Moultrie asked a man to help her load a push lawn-mower into the trunk of her car at Wal-mart July 28th. After he finished, she says he grabbed her purse and threw her to the ground.

Nash says, "I think it's pretty dirty, but they say that's the ones they prey on, is the older people."
