Thief rips rare coin from 80 year old retiree

A rare Spanish coin, over several hundred years old, is brutally snatched from the neck of a Cape senior citizen, and now Crime Stoppers is hoping the suspect can be found, along with the one-of-a-kind work of art.

According to Cape Coral Police, on Saturday, January 12, around 12:30 p.m., the senior citizen was sitting in his convertible car near the 4500 block of Del Prado Boulevard, when a white male in his 30s approached him and asked what time it was.
