Police are looking for a man who robbed a pregnant woman outside her home in Menlo Park on Wednesday night, a police sergeant said.
Officers responded to a report of a robbery in the 1200 block of Sevier Avenue around 9:45 p.m., Sgt. Tim Brackett said.
The woman was sitting in the passenger seat of her car parked on the driveway of the residence where a man approached her, Brackett said.
He demanded the woman for her personal property but did not open the car door, according to Brackett.
The man then broke into the passenger side window with an unknown object injuring the woman, he said.
With force he took $200 in cash from her and fled the scene, according to Brackett.
The woman was also injured by shattered glass from the broken window and was transported for injuries that were not considered to be life-threatening, Brackett said.
The woman told officers she was 8 months pregnant and had returned home after a night out.
Officers searched the area for the man without success.
The suspect is described as a black man around his mid-30s standing about 5 feet 8 inches tall with a slender to medium build. He was last seen wearing a black long-sleeved hooded sweatshirt with the hood pulled over his head.
