Robbers Target the Elderly in Wilkes-Barre
WILKES-BARRE, Pa. -- Wilkes-Barre police have increased patrols in the city's east end due to recent strong-arm robberies. They're also patrolling more in the north end where they believe a robber is targeting the elderly. For more than 20 years, Denise Leinbach has lived in Wilkes-Barre's north end, but reports of 12 strong-arm robberies since September have her ready to leave.
