ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Police say a New Mexico woman who confronted a masked intruder in her home stumbled upon a shocking discovery when she ripped off his disguise — the robber was her grandson.
KRQE-TV reports that 22-year-old Thomas Clark is facing robbery charges after police say he stole his grandmother’s purse during a bizarre robbery at an Albuquerque home.
According to police, the woman confronted Clark, dressed in black with a purple bandana over his face, last week when he broke into her home.
Police say the woman yanked off the mask but Clark pushed her and fled with her purse.
