Wolfe says the suspect told her to be quiet and give him money and he would not harm her according to Debbie Tanna, Public Information Officer.
The suspect made away with a bank envelope containing $700 in cash - Wolfe’s entire social security check earnings for the month.
The suspect fled on foot, walking down a dirt road toward Spring Avenue.
