#Bridgeport, CT – April 17, 2014– A 22-year-old woman faces charges that she robbed and assaulted as 76-year-old man.

Officer Frank Cuccaro responded to a Yacht Street apartment Wednesday and spoke to the victim, who stated that he was robbed in his apartment. He stated someone knocked at his door and, when he opened it, a female entered and began looking through his possessions. He stated the woman slapped him in the face and took $14 out of his pants pockets, a ring and a watch.

At 2:40 p.m., about 90 minutes after the initial call, dispatchers received information that the suspect had returned and was in the area of 55 Shell St. When Cuccaro and Officer Kenneth Ruge arrived, the victim exited a car and pointed out the suspect.

Rachel Plotkin, of Bridgeport, was charged with second-degree robbery, second-degree assault on an elderly person and sixth-degree larceny.

Her bond was set at $25,000.
