ORIGINAL REPORT: Thieves forget to cover tracks after carjacking 88-year-old woman in Livonia
Bystanders came to the woman's aid and police and EMS arrived shortly after the incident.
"I told them at hospital I'm a tough broad."
Kevelighan was walking toward the Walmart on Plymouth Road just before 4 p.m. when a man grabbed her.
"I tried to hit him with my cane but I couldn't," Kevelighan said.
The man stole her purse and her Ford Escape.
Police arrested a 38-year-old man from Sterling Heights and a 41-year-old woman from Lincoln Park later the same day as the carjacking.
Police found the suspects on the Dearborn Heights-Detroit border after they were able to track a phone that was left in Kevelighan's car.
Kevelighan is grateful to the Livonia Police Department and all the people who helped her.
The suspects are expected to be arraigned Thursday.
