HOLIDAY — On Sunday afternoon, a 93-year-old woman saw a man outside her home messing with her gutters. She went out and asked what he was doing. The stranger said he was cleaning them – something the woman never asked him to do.

Authorities said the man followed her inside her home on Mandolin Way, grabbed her neck, pushed her down and stole $40, saying the money "was for his babies," before fleeing the residence.

The Pasco County Sheriff's Office released a composite sketch of the man Tuesday. He is believed to be in his mid-40s with a fair complexion and dark hair. He might go by the name Larry, the report states.
