ST. PETERSBURG — The robber who mugged a man in a wheelchair outside a Walgreens pharmacy last week was captured on surveillance video.
Ronald Prgomelja, 74, of St. Petersburg had just made a purchase at the counter around 5:30 p.m. Aug. 7 and exited the store at 2195 66th St. N when a man brushed up against him, nearly knocking him to the ground.
The man, dressed in a black-and-white horizontal striped shirt, jeans and a black cap, ripped Prgomelja's wallet from his lap and ran, St. Petersburg Police said. He got away with about $200, medical cards and family pictures.
The video shows the suspect in line, seconds before Prgomelja, who was in a neck brace, left the pharmacy.
Police urge anyone with information to call (727) 893-7780.
