Woman Shot during Purse Robbery in Silver Lake LAPD Releases Composite Sketch of Suspect NR10198ah

Los Angeles: Los Angeles Police Department Northeast detectives have provided a composite drawing of a man who shot and wounded a woman during a purse snatch incident in the Silver Lake area on April 11.

Detectives say the woman and a group of her companions were walking to their car in the 2300 block of Glendale Boulevard around 9:30 p.m. when a man approached them and asked for the time.  As the individuals looked down at their watches, the man violently attempted to snatch the woman’s purse.  The companions intervened and struggled to fight off of the suspect.  In the course of the struggle, the suspect shot the woman in the arm and ran with her purse.  Paramedics rushed the woman to a local hospital with non life-threatening injuries.

The suspect was described as a thin-build, male Hispanic between 20 to 35 years of age.  He stood 5 foot 8 inches and was last seen wearing a dark-blue, hooded sweatshirt.

A composite sketch of the suspect is available on www.lapdonline.org.

Anyone with information regarding this crime is urged to call Northeast Division robbery detectives at 213-847-4270.  During non-business hours or on weekends, calls may be directed to 1-877-LAPD-24-7.  Anyone wishing to remain anonymous may call Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (800-222-8477).  Tipsters may also contact Crimestoppers by texting to phone number 274637 (C-R-I-M-E-S on most keypads) using a cell phone.  All text messages should begin with the letters “LAPD.”  Tipsters can also go to LAPDOnline.org, click on “web tips” and follow the prompts.
