Woman: Scooter thief claimed oil change - An 85-year-old Pennsylvania woman said the man who stole her electric scooter told her he was taking it for an oil change and other repairs.

Betty Keefer, 85, said the man showed up at her Greensburg, Penn., home March 11, said he was taking the black Sonic Pride scooter for repairs and promised to return the item within a week, WTAE-TV, Pittsburgh, reported Thursday.

Keefer said she was somewhat suspicious of the man's claims but allowed him to take the scooter anyway.

"I had an idea he'd try to steal it. He's a bad, bad ... I told police if they find him, put him in jail forever," Keefer said.

Police said the man left Keefer with a note that he signed with the first name Frank and a last name that investigators believe to be McGinnis, McGinniz or McGinriz.

Greeley brawl included a scooter - A 32-year-old woman suspected of beating another woman with a child's scooter has been arrested in Greeley.

Renee Soto is being held on suspicion of third-degree assault, Greeley Police Department spokesman Sgt. Joe Tymkowych said Wednesday.

Soto and Amanda Watkins, 26, got into an argument about noon Sunday when Watkins talked to Soto's 3-year-old child about "harassing or hitting" a cat, police said.

The incident happened near Soto's home in the 1900 block of Seventh Avenue, Tymkowych said.

As Watkins talked to the child about the cat, Soto came out of her home, and an argument escalated into a fight between the two women, Tymkowych said.

"It was a fistfight, with hair-pulling and scratching," Tymkowych said.

A witness who stopped to break up the fight told police that Soto grabbed a "Razor," a two-wheel kick scooter with a handle bar, and hit Watkins with it across the back and in the head.

Watkins fell to the ground, and witnesses came to her aid, covering her with a blanket. Soto had gone back into her home with the 3-year-old and left out of a rear exit when police arrived, Tymkowych said.

Watkins, who told police that she is nine weeks pregnant, was treated at North Colorado Medical Center for minor injuries and released.

The women did not know each other before Sunday's confrontation, Tymkowych said.

Soto is being held at the Weld County Jail in lieu of $20,000 bail.
