2909 E. Washington Ave. (outside of Walgreens)
Male, black, 30-40 years old, 6'3" to 6'6", 200 to 220 pounds, wearing a white t-shirt with gold lettering on the front, jeans, a necklace similar to a rosary and possibly tan shores.
Male, age 80, Madison
An 80-year old man was on his way into the Walgreens, 2909 E. Washington Ave., to buy some mouthwash Tuesday evening, when a stranger approached and held out a driver's license.
He said something about being in Madison to visit a relative, and that he now needed $10 to get back home to Milwaukee.
The victim was sympathetic, and took out his wallet.
He opened it up, and said the stranger quickly grabbed a $50 bill and fled.
