LOUISVILLE, Ky. (LEX 18) – After turning to social media for help, Louisville police got tips that helped them arrest a man accused of exploiting an elderly woman suffering from memory loss.

Dwon Arwin Sawyers is accused of going to the woman’s house on four occasions and convincing her to withdraw money to pay him each time.

The first two times, he took her to an ATM. Police say he then got bolder and joined her inside a bank.

Investigators say Sawyers got away with nearly $3,000. He now faces charges of theft and exploitation.
