Police say the incident occurred around 2:30 p.m. when a 25-year-old female walking along South Dupont Road was joined by the suspect, who was riding a pink bicycle. The suspect engaged the victim in conversation and rode next to her as she walked towards her destination on Lancaster Pike. As the pair traveled along the railroad tracks by Silverbrook Cemetery, the suspect pulled a knife on the victim and demanded that she turn over her possessions. She gave the suspect an undisclosed amount of cash, and the suspect rode away towards Lancaster Pike.
