Duluth resident Taylor Griffin, 19, was arrested on suspicion of first-degree aggravated assault, auto theft, and child endangerment for carjacking a 77-year-old woman who offered to give her and her 2-year-old child a ride because the elderly woman was concerned about Griffin and her kid being stranded in the cold weather.

Griffin approached the woman at Walmart about 2 p.m. Saturday. The Duluth News Tribune, citing police, details what allegedly happened from there:
Griffin allegedly told the woman that she was stranded there and asked if she could get a ride home to West Duluth for money. The alleged victim told Griffin that she felt bad that the child was outside in the cold, and said money wasn't necessary.

Police said the woman brought Griffin and the boy to 66th Avenue West and Polk Street. Griffin then allegedly pulled the woman from the car, threw her on the ground and took off in the car with the woman's purse and other items.

Officers later found the stolen vehicle on the 10 block of North 56th Avenue West and spotted the suspect and child leaving a residence, police said. The alleged victim's credit cards, cellphone and other items were found in possession of Griffin, and other items were found in a snowbank, the department reported.
Perhaps because of the heinousness of Griffin's alleged crimes, the Tribune sees fit to close its report by noting, "As with all criminal defendants, she is presumed innocent until found guilty."

Duluth used to be a nice city. Since when did they build Section 8 housing up there?

Judging by its red fur and dead eyes, it has a severe case of fuxation.  The only know treatments are incarceration and euthanasia.

@WhiteMatt Too many naive white-guilt-ridden libtard "progressive" churchy do-gooders there who get all their news from NPR and Salon and other libtard shit outlets thought it would be fun and "vibrant" and "diverse" to import a bunch of Africans and their American counterparts.

@really 

I checked 5 different sources and none of them mentioned the ethnicity of the victim.  Are you just assuming, or do you have a source?
