Jim Grimes says it only took five minutes for a thief to enter his Mayfair home, punch him in the face and steal $600.

Grimes was taking groceries inside his house on the 2900 block of Gilham Street when an intruder walked into his house.

Grimes suffered a busted lip during the altercation.

His 91-year-old mother was not hurt.

Police believe Grimes and his mother may have been followed after a trip to the bank and shopping.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Philadelphia police.
