SHARE Man wanted for robbing elderly man at Hammond train station

A northwest Indiana man is wanted for attacking an 84-year-old man and stealing his wallet at a Hammond, Ind., train station last summer.

The victim had just bought a newspaper inside the Hammond South Shore Station at 4513 Hohman Ave. on June 27, 2014, when he was physically assaulted and robbed by 31-year-old Darryl Leigh Kilgore, according to Northern Indiana Commuter Transportation District police.

The victim later identified Kilgore after seeing footage of the robbery on the local news and called police. Witnesses also identified him in a photo line-up, police said.

The Lake County prosecutor’s office has charged Kilgore, a Hammond resident, with a felony count of robbery resulting in bodily injury, police said. He remains at-large.

Anyone with information about him is asked to contact NICTD transit police at (219) 398-6000.
