Mike said his mother-in-law, who was visiting from Wisconsin, was strolling around Wayne and Webster when the event happened.
“My mother-in-law was coming over to Christmas shop with my wife,” he stated. “She walked her dog before entering our home.

Before she arrived, two guys leapt out of the vehicle, pointed a pistol at her, and demanded her handbag, threatening to murder her and her dog.
Mike claims his mother-in-law handed over her pocketbook, and the burglar snatched her car keys and drove away.
