Columbia Valley RCMP is investigating after a 99 year old Invermere woman was robbed.
Police says the incident happened Friday night when the elderly resident was visited by another woman in her 60s who asked to use the phone.
The home owner invited the visitor in and allowed her to use the phone and bathroom.
The guest allegedly came out of the bathroom, grabbed the 99 year old by the arm and dragged her down the hallway.
The suspect, who was said to be wearing a blackcoat and hood, then stole cash cheques and personal identification.
The elderly victim is said to be uninjured.
