Mom turns in son Isaiah Jamal Foster for allegedly robbing woman

A Minnesota teen wanted by cops for allegedly trying to rob an elderly woman ended up being busted after his own mother recognized him in CCTV footage and turned him in.

Isaiah Jamal Foster, 18, has been charged with aggravated robbery and assault over the Dec. 23 attack on the 81-year-old woman at a Walgreens in St Paul, FOX9 reported.

In a bid to track the suspect down, police released CCTV footage last week that showed the suspect trying to steal the victim’s bag as she entered the store.

The video showed the victim, whose purse was strapped around her wrist, being violently pulled onto the sidewalk after the suspect grabbed hold.

Cops said the victim suffered a brain bleed, broken pelvis and other injuries after she fell to the floor outside the store. She was treated in a hospital but has since been released.

Foster was nabbed after his mom told cops she recognized the coat the suspect was wearing — and that she was convinced it was her teenage son.

“I’m 100 percent sure that is him,” the mother said, according to a criminal complaint.

Foster’s mom told authorities she didn’t raise her son that way — and decided to turn him in after “praying on it,” the complaint said.

Foster had already been in police custody — for a car-jacking Tuesday in St. Paul — when his mom phoned in the tip.

He was wearing the same coat when he was taken in over the alleged carjacking, cops said.
