Elderly man robbed outside bank 2 months ago dies of his injuriesPosted: Updated:
PHOENIX – An elderly man who was robbed and attacked two months ago after making a large withdrawal from a Phoenix bank has died.
Seymour Sendrow, 90, and his wife Pearl, 88, were assaulted and robbed outside a Chase bank in December after withdrawing about $20,000 in cash for gifts and to make holiday donations.
Seymour reportedly was shoved by one of two suspects outside the bank, causing him to fall and hit his head and break his hip. He died Sunday.
“Unfortunately, the downward spiral of health because of this injury of the broken hip just kept making things worse and, sadly, the 90-year-old male died as a result of those injuries,” said Sgt. Darren Burch with the Phoenix Police Department.
This robbery investigation has now become a murder investigation. The suspects are still at large and now face murder charges.
The suspects are described as Hispanic males approximately 19 years old. One was approximately 130 pounds, 5 feet 8 inches tall, with short dark hair and a thin mustache. He was wearing jeans and a dark hooded sweatshirt at the time of the robbery.
The other suspect is described as 150 pounds, 5 feet to 5 feet 5 inches tall and wearing a dark jacket.
The suspects were seen driving away in a late 1990s red Ford Mustang.
Silent Witness is offering a reward of up to $1,000 for information that leads to the arrest of the suspects.
