According to detectives, on Monday, October 1, 2014, at 10:45 a.m., a suspect loitered around a bank located near Jefferson and Crenshaw Boulevards. The suspect surveyed possible victims in the bank and then chose a victim. On video, the suspect was seen watching a 67-year-old woman during her transaction.
She then left the bank and the suspect followed her to her residence in the 3000 block of 10th Avenue. When she got out of her car, the suspect walked past her while causally greeting her. The suspect then quickly turned around, pushed the victim to the ground and forcefully took her purse. The suspect was then seen driving away in a ‘90s model faded dark blue Nissan Altima.
The suspect is described as a male Black in his thirties, who stands approximately 6’ tall and weighs approximately 250-300 pounds. He has black hair, brown eyes and wears a full beard. At the time of this crime, he was wearing a black shirt, tan shorts, a baseball hat and tennis shoes.
Detectives are also investigating another strong-armed robbery that occurred five days prior just blocks away from this robbery. Both victims gave similar accounts and description of the suspect. The investigators are asking for other possible victims to come forward and the public’s help to provide any information that might lead to the capture of the suspect wanted for assaulting and robbing the elderly.
