Obama to Replace Coin That Robber Took From Park Ranger, 94 - SFGate
The nation’s oldest park ranger was beaten in her Richmond home by a man who broke in and robbed her of a special commemorative coin given to her by President Obama, who sent word to her boss Thursday that he will replace the prized keepsake.
Betty Reid Soskin, a 94-year-old U.S. park ranger, was attacked just after midnight on Monday when she woke up in her apartment in Richmond’s Hilltop area and found the stranger in her bedroom, police said.
“I fully expected he was going to kill me. He doubled up his fist and hit me a couple of times on the sides of my face with all his might,” Soskin told KTVU.
