Thieves steal Southside Lions Pony League Baseball Association money
2 men rob elderly man of wallet, cash
San Antonio police are asking for the public's help in finding two crooks who robbed an elderly man over the weekend.
They say the bad guys jumped Eddie Hernandez while he bought ice at an east side ice machine.
"One ended up taking my truck, my wallet and keys and everything else,” said Hernandez.
Investigators believe two men committed the crime.
One was captured on surveillance tape from a neighboring store. It even got a picture of the compact car the two men drove up in.
Hernandez said the thieves not only took his personal belongings, but $1,500 worth of cash that was supposed to go to the Southside Lions Pony League Baseball Association.
That association has 50 teams with 1,000 kids involved.
“We've been working really hard to grow the organization and it's just kind of sad that this happened,” said Hernandez.
Fortunately, Hernandez wasn’t hurt, but the organization that supports young baseball players in the area is out a lot of money.
He said that money was supposed to go towards uniforms, equipment, and their travelling expenses.
Hernandez said, "It's pretty sad people do stuff like that not knowing who they're hurting.”
If you have any information on this case, you’re asked to call Crime Stoppers at 210-207-STOP (7687). Crime Stoppers will pay up to $5,000 for information which leads to the arrest of the suspects involved in the theft of Mr. Hernandez’s property.
