Police seek information on robbery
An anonymous donor is offering a $500 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of a suspect who allegedly attacked and robbed a 72-year-old man on Reynolds Street in Brunswick.

Brunswick Police Detective Roy Blackstock said Wednesday he hopes the reward will help lead police to the suspect because too often attacks on individuals go unsolved because witnesses are reluctant to come forward.

"Hopefully the reward will get some people talking. There was no reason for this guy to hit this 72-year-old man," Blackstock said.

Police responded to the attack just after 11:30 p.m. July 15 in the 1200 block of Reynolds Street, according to a police report released Thursday.

When they arrived, police found 72-year-old Edward Wayne bleeding from his eye and suffering from an injured elbow.

Wayne told police he parked his truck and was about to walk to his home when an approximately 5-foot 10-inch, 160-pound black male, wearing a white horizontal striped shirt and dark pants, struck him on the left side of his face.

Wayne fell to the ground after he was struck, according to the report, and the suspect reportedly took Wayne's wallet, which contained $15, financial cards and two lottery tickets.

Wayne told police the suspect ran east toward Union Street between two houses, according to the report.

Blackstock said anyone with information can call him at 267-5091, or those wishing to remain anonymous can call Brunswick Silent Witness at 267-5516.
