A Daly City woman on her way to make a bank deposit for her work had her purse stolen in South San Francisco on Friday by a man who threatened to shoot her, according to police. The victim had just left work and was approaching her parked car in the 100 block of Terminal Court when the man grabbed her purse from behind, police said. The woman held on to her bag, but let go of it when the suspect told her, “Give me your pursue or I’ll shoot you,” police said.

The suspect got into a dark-colored sedan waiting nearby that was driven by a second person, and the car was last seen traveling east on Produce Avenue and then south onto U.S. Highway 101. No gun was seen, and the victim was uninjured, police said. The victim’s purse contained cash and checks made out to her employer. The suspect vehicle was found abandoned in the 100 block of West Harris Avenue around 90 minutes later.

The car was an unreported stolen vehicle out of Redwood City, police said. The suspect is described as a Hispanic man, 25 to 30 years old, about 5 feet 6 inches tall and 200 pounds, with a medium complexion. He was wearing a gray, hooded sweatshirt and blue jeans. The driver of the suspect vehicle was described only as a male.
