This Lady Robbed 89-year-old Disabled Grandfather at Knifepoint, Hit Him With Tree Branch
Lateefah Williams is something else. The 37-year-old from Chicago's South side robbed her disabled grandfather, hitting him with a tree branch and putting a knife to his throat before stealing $150, his car keys and the deed to his house. According to police, Lateefah's 89-year-old grandfather recently suffered a stroke and has been staying in a rehabilitation facility. He was was dropped off at his house Friday to pick up clothes to take back to the facility, that's when Lateefah, who lived in the same building, pounced. Police say she snuck into his apartment with her boyfriend, hit her grandfather with a tree branch and demanded money. When he denied having money, she put a large pocket knife to his throat. Her grandfather then gave Lateefah the keys to a file cabinet, where she found $150, the deeds to his house and car, the keys to his car and his social security card, all of which she took. Lateefah and her boyfriend then left through the front door and drove away in her grandfather's car. When the victim's son arrived, he told his son what happened and police were called. Lateefah and her boyfriend were pulled over in her grandfather’s car and arrested a short time. The victim had an order of protection against his granddaughter. So did another family member. Lateefah was charged with armed robbery, aggravated battery, aggravated possession of a stolen motor vehicle, armed home invasion and violating an order of protection. Bail was denied.
