A woman was attacked and robbed as she arrived for work in San Carlos on Wednesday morning, according to the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office. At about 6:30 a.m., the woman was unlocking the rear entrance of a business in the 1600 block of Laurel Street when a large man grabbed her from behind and said he had a knife, sheriff’s investigators said. The victim was forced indoors and the suspect tried to remove an article of her clothing, according to the sheriff’s office.
A security alarm was activated, prompting the suspect to flee, investigators said. As he left the building, he stole the victim’s purse. The victim was not injured in the attack, and a knife was never seen. Responding deputies from the sheriff’s office and Redwood City police searched the area but did not find the suspect.
He was described as a white man with blue eyes, around 6 feet 5 inches tall and weighing around 300 pounds. He was wearing a black San Francisco Giants baseball cap, a dark hooded sweatshirt and blue jeans.
