Police are seeking help in identifying two women who robbed a 95-year-old Air Force veteran.
On Thursday at 8:19 p.m. Fairborn officers were dispatched to the Fairborn Hotel, 800 N. Broad St. Officers arrived and spoke with the 95-year-old victim, a retired lieutenant colonel traveling from Colorado to Michigan to see his family.
He said two females took money from him. The victim was not injured and no weapon was displayed.
"I'm angry at myself for having that one hundred dollar bill out where she could get a hold of it," he said Friday. "She buffaloed me the whole way."
The victim was approached by a female at the Baymont Hotel at 730 E Xenia Ave. The victim was looking for a hotel to stay for the evening while he was traveling. The female convinced the victim to go to the Fairborn Hotel because it was reportedly less expensive. While at the Fairborn Hotel, the victim was distracted by a second female suspect and an envelope with money was taken.
"She said my buddy, a blonde girl, loves you and wants to kiss you goodbye," he said. "Stupid me I went out."
A security camera caught images of the hotel's front desk.
At this time this appears to be an isolated incident. The Fairborn Police Department has not received any other complaints involving the same reported circumstanced or described suspects.
If anyone recognized the female in the photograph they are asked to contact the police department at (937) 754-3000 or a tip line at (937) 754-3018.
