San Carlos police arrested two East Palo Alto men suspected of forcibly robbing an 81-year-old woman Thursday. A witness reported the robbery near the intersection of Belmont Avenue and Walnut Street at about 3 p.m. Police said the woman was walking with her husband when one of the men approached her, tried to engage her in a conversation and then grabbed her purse from her walker. The suspect ran and then fled in a silver Chrysler PT Cruiser driven by the second suspect, police said. Officers caught up with the suspects near Whipple and Industrial Road in Redwood City. They recovered the victim’s purse as well as a handgun and mask in the Chrysler, which police said were not used during the robbery. No injuries were reported, police said. The suspects, identified as 31-year-old Jonathan White and 45-year-old Frederick White, were arrested and booked into San Mateo County jail.
