    Police seek

    would-be mugger

    Rutland police say they are searching for a man who reportedly tried to steal a bag of prescription drugs from a man walking with crutches outside a city pharmacy.

    Police were called to Walgreens Pharmacy on Woodstock Avenue at 11:30 a.m. Tuesday where Felix Krowinski told police he was approached outside the store by a roughly 60-year-old man who grabbed his prescription bag and tried to wrench it out of his hand, according to Rutland Police Sgt. James Tarbell.

    Krowinski said he held onto the bag and kept his balance long enough for his wife Susan to come to his aid.

    The Rutland couple told police that the unidentified man fled the scene in an orange or rust colored SUV, Tarbell said.

    Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call city police at 773-1816.
