Woman Charged With Attacking, Robbing 81-Year-Old Man At Loop CTA Station

Dollarson (right) is accused of attacking an 81-year-old man on a Loop CTA platform Monday.
The morning after an 81-year-old man plunged down a Loop CTA station staircase during a robbery on Monday night, his now-accused attacker took to Facebook:

“It don't even matter from this point. I'm definitely going back to jail smh. I can't deal with life. Tired of struggling. Tired of trying with a marriage that wasn't gone last. Tired of my FUCKING LIFE PERIOD. Maybe I'm better off locked up. 15 years here I come. Mommy sorry baby, if I loved you like I claimed I did, I wouldn't be in the situation I'm in…..”
Soon, acquaintances and strangers from across the internet were responding to Victoria Dollarson’s status update, urging her to turn herself it, posting links to media reports of the CTA attack, and worse.

As CWB Chicago reported on Thursday morning, a source who saw a police alert seeking an “unknown male” in the attack immediately identified the wanted person as a woman who frequents Lakeview’s many social service centers. We withheld Dollarson’s name because she had not been charged.

Until now.

Cops following up on a flood of tips arrested her Thursday night, police said. She’s charged with felony robbery of a victim over the age of 60.

On Monday evening, prosecutors say, Dollarson grabbed the elderly victim’s hand and cellphone as he stepped off of a Brown Line train at the Wabash station around 9:25 p.m.

A struggle ensued and the man fell down a staircase, causing him to sustain serious injuries. He is in critical condition at Northwestern Memorial Hospital, police said.

Court records show Dollarson pleaded guilty to a manufacture-delivery of crack cocaine and received two-years probation in April. A domestic violence arrest in September was recorded as a violation of her probation, but Judge Thomas Gainer reinstated the original sentence on September 20th.

This afternoon, her bail was set at $150,000.

  2. Boo-fucking-hoo. Lots of people have problems. They don't rob and injure elderly people. I hope you rot in jail.

  4. Anyone else find it interesting that in her rant, she feels pity for herself and her mother......but has absolutely nothing to say for the person she stole from and then injured so badly they spent a night in the hospital. She acts like this brutal, life-changing crime is just a symptom of her problems with her life. As if she lashed out and destroyed a vending machine, or maybe broke someone's windshield.

    2. The social service agencies in our neighborhood TEACH all their clients to play the victim.

  5. Wow. Not one thought about the 81 year old man at the bottom of those stairs. Just drama about her poor little self. I hope the courts do something to get her off the streets. And why can't we defend ourselves in this city? It's practically against the law to protect yourself.

      Umm you can ,and no it's not. In IL you can't get sued or get in trouble if you protect yourself against a forcful felony. Last time I checked robbery is a forcful felony. So gear up and put your cape on Clark Kent!! That's one right we actually do have.

    2. Well...I'm a handicapped senior. What legal weapon can I carry to defend myself other than concealed carry which is not legal to carry on public transportation. If you know something I don't I'd be happy to hear it. Seriously.

    3. Handicapped senior, I feel your pain and frustration. Unfortunately the state severely limits the places where we can legally carry. The thugs will continue to carry illegally everywhere, and we are limited to basically a few places where we are within shitty state laws to carry. So besides pepper spray or a knife, I don't have a good answer for you. But I can tell you this much. When it comes to the safety of my wife, my newborn, and myself, I would rather be judged by 12 then carried by 6. Don't necessarily take my advice for I am a nobody, but if there is no metal detector, many many people will carry everywhere they go. If your properly concealed nobody has to know. I'd rather have one and not need it, then need it, and not have one. Number one advice I can give though, is just stay extra vigilant at all times. Try to always think one step ahead of the bad guy. "What if" scenerios should be always bouncing around in your head if in a possible bad area. Just some things to think about I guess...Good luck out there!

    4. To the handicapped senior above -
      I can't speak about the legality, but look at various pepper or CS sprays.
      There are a variety of sizes available, depending on your hand size & strength.
      Several companies including Unarex and Walther make a pistol-type spray handle, plus water filled practice cartridges. Many are available direct shipped or via Amazon.
      They may or may not be legal, but I cannot imagine getting prosecuting a vulnerable senior who felt unsafe on public transportation. That'd be a PR disaster even for Preckwinkle and Foxxx.

    5. Thank you for all of the suggestions. I need to figure out something and these are all good ideas. Maybe a really loud alarm might help too. It's ridiculous to even have this discussion but Chicago has turned into every man or woman for himself. As far as being a vulnerable senior, I don't think Preckwinkle or Foxx would have a problem prosecuting if the senior hurt one of their young criminal victims.

  6. Probation violation led to nothing and now another victim, typical for Chicago. Thoughts to the victim of this savage.

  7. That poor 81 year old victim, praying for him. Bleeding on the brain at his age is serious, he's in critical condition according to one report. As far as this piece of trash, as usual, she gets pity, takes no responsibility. The Facebook people who knew it was her should be arrested for not turning her in immediately. Hope she does some big time. In Crooked County, she won't.

  8. Concealed carry is just that. As far as I know if there is a sign that states one cannot carry a firearm has every right to ask you to leave but it is not a punishable offence.
