THE WOMAN had no money to give, but that didn't stop the robber who held her up at gunpoint in an Upper Darby alley about 8:30 p.m. Jan. 17. "You are going to give me something," he said, according to police reports. With that, the robber took something far more precious than cash from the 19-year-old woman. He took her body. Police said the attack happened in the rear alley of Wiltshire Road near Patterson Avenue. The victim was walking home from a friend's house when the suspect grabbed her from behind and took her behind a bush and performed various sex acts on her, and forced her to perform them on him, police said.

"It's like George Bailey - everything George did was for everyone in the town," said Michelle Knobloch, referring to the Frank Capra movie. "This is all for Dave Callahan. He is quietly philanthropic and giving in so many ways. " Callahan, who has run what he calls Bucks County's oldest hardware store for 27 years, represents "the integrity of this borough," Knobloch said.

To Bob Tracey, this isn't a hypothetical. Tracey, a 61-year-old SEPTA worker, was heading home to Springfield around midnight Monday when he noticed the bag on State Road. At first, he thought it was a woman's purse. Maybe a bag someone had perched atop a car and forgotten before driving off. But it had a bank name in the corner.
