Police: NM woman unmasks robber, finds grandson

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Police say a New Mexico woman who confronted a masked intruder in her home stumbled upon a shocking discovery when she ripped off his disguise - the robber was her grandson.

KRQE-TV reports that 22-year-old Thomas Clark is facing robbery charges after police say he stole his grandmother's purse during a bizarre robbery at an Albuquerque home.

According to police, the woman confronted the Clark, dressed in black with a purple bandana over his face, last week when he broke into her home.

Police say the woman yanked off the mask but Clark pushed her and fled with her purse.

He was arrested later at his parents' home.

Police say he confessed and said he did it for casino money.

It was unclear if he had an attorney.
