LACONIA - 71-year-old Robert Wilson was home when two people - a man and a woman - wearing bandannas approached him and asked him for his wallet.
“He was on the deck and apparently two guys came up and asked him for his wallet,” said Andrea Wilson when describing the masked bandits approaching her father.
Police are calling the suspects brazen and said because of the bandannas they don’t have much of a description at this time.
Neighbors know better though, they’re on the lookout.
“We’re really tight,” said Greg Haynes who lives in the neighborhood near Lincoln Street. “People in this neighborhood are looking out for each other. You know what if I’m going down swinging. If they break into my house whatever happens, happens."
Wilson’s father is doing well, and when NH1 News asked if his daughter was surprised at her father’s reaction to being robbed, she laughed.
“No if it’s something that he doesn’t think should be done he’s not going to fight people about it, but he'll just be like, 'yeah, whatever,' and do what he think is right,” said Wilson.
The best advice police said they can give is to be vigilant and know your surroundings.
They are looking into reports of a maroon car driving away from the first robbery attempt.
If you have any information call the Laconia Police at 524-5252.
