***UPDATE***

On July 05, 2009, at about 3:00 p.m., after an extensive investigation Wilshire Robbery Detectives   arrested and booked April Pitts, 25 years of age from Fontana, for Attempt Murder and Robbery.  She is being held on $2 million bail. 
The victim's condition is stable after undergoing surgery; she is recovering at a local hospital.


Los Angeles:
  Late Monday night, a woman walking alone was robbed of her purse and then shot without provocation.

On June 29, 2009, at around 11:20 p.m., a 31 year-old woman was walking east on 3rd Street near Kings Road, going to a friend’s house.  The victim was approached by Suspect #1, a loan Black female, 20-25 years-old, 5 feet 5 inches tall, 145 pounds, wearing all dark clothing, who demanded the victim’s purse and indicated she would shoot the victim if she did not cooperate.  The Suspect pulled the victim’s purse off of her arm and then shot the victim in the upper torso.

A witness driving east on 3rd Street approaching Orlando Avenue was flagged down by the victim who told them she had just been robbed and shot.  The witness observed the suspect leaving the location in a car driving north on Kings Road and followed the car to the 100 block of South Flores Street where three suspects got out of the car and began running through the apartment complex.  The suspects were described only as two male Blacks with dark complexions and one light complected female Black.

Wilshire Area Robbery Detectives are following several leads but are asking anyone with information about this case to call Detective Robert Palacios at 213-922-8266.  After hours or on weekends, calls may be directed to a 24-hour, toll-free number at 1-877-LAPD-24-7 or by texting CRIMES (274637) and beginning the message with the letters LAPD.  Tipsters may also submit information on the LAPD website: www.lapdonline.org.  All tips may remain anonymous.
