Yakima Woman Outsmarts Robbery Attempt
Shirley Dusseault went to the Walmart on 64th Ave and Nob Hill on Monday to buy a birthday gift for her four-year-old grandson. She says it wasn’t until she drove down South 64th Avenue near Nob Hill that she found herself taken by surprise and fearing for her life. Yakima Police say two men jumped into the middle of the street, forcing her to swerve and pull off to the side of the road.
One of the men jumped into her car and demanded she hand over cash. After finding only $7, he attempted to take her truck. When she refused, he threw her oxygen tank onto the ground, and slapped her across the face. The two men immediately took off and hid in a nearby orchard. But police were unable to find any suspects after an extensive search. The investigation continues.
