A woman walking home with her bag of groceries in Dayton, Ohio, was robbed by two teenage boys and assaulted with potatoes she’d just bought on Thursday afternoon.
The woman told 911 dispatchers two boys dressed in all black stole her wallet, money, cigarettes, and her bag of groceries with onions, celery and potatoes inside.
“They took my potatoes and threw them at me. They were my bag of potatoes from Save-A-Lot,” the woman told the 911 dispatcher.
“Other than the potatoes did they have any weapons like a gun or knife?” asked the dispatcher.
“No but those potatoes hurt,” the woman replied.
Approximately two hours after the robbery, Dayton officers on patrol spotted the two boys matching the suspect descriptions, walking in the same area.
One teenager was captured quickly, the second took off running, but after a K9 track and thorough search over several blocks, they arrested the second suspect. Police said the boys were 14 and 15 years old.
They’ll be questioned by police and taken to the county juvenile detention facility.
