Two Suspects Sought Over $100,000 Purse Snatch

Los Angeles: Los Angeles Police Department Rampart detectives are asking for the public’s help in identifying two men suspected of snatching a business woman’s purse which contained over $100,000 in cash.

The robbery took place on January 14, 2010 around 5 p.m.  According to investigators, a woman entered the Bank of America at 3320 West Olympic Boulevard in Los Angeles and withdrew a large sum of money.  Afterwards, the woman got into her car and returned to the parking garage of her business located in the 1500 block of West Olympic Boulevard.  When the woman stepped out of her parked car, a man approached her and tried to grab her purse.  The woman resisted, and the man violently grabbed her purse while a second suspect stood by.  The pair escaped in a blue four-door sedan, possibly described as a Dodge Intrepid.  The woman was not injured as a result of the incident.

Investigators believe that prior to the incident, the suspects had been lurking around in the bank, eyeing customers who withdrew cash.

Both suspects are described as African American.  The first suspect is 25 to 28 years old, between 5 feet 8 and 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighs between 170 and 180 pounds.  He was last seen wearing a black shirt, blue pants and black shoes.

The second suspect is 23 to 27 years old, between 5 feet 8 and 5 feet 11 inches tall and weighs between 190 and 200 pounds.  He has a goatee and was last seen wearing a black and grey knit cap, white T-shirt, blue jeans and dark shoes with white soles.

Anyone with information regarding this crime is urged to call Rampart robbery detectives at (213) 484-3629.  During non-business hours or on weekends, calls may be directed to 1-877-LAPD-24-7.  Anyone wishing to remain anonymous may call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (800-222-8477).  Tipsters may also contact Crime Stoppers 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.
