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.
