Los Angeles: The Los
Angeles Police Department’s Olympic Area are seeking the public’s
help in identifying the person responsible for the brutal attack of
40-year-old female in Pico-Union.

On Thursday, March 01, 2018, around 6:15 p.m., Los Angeles police
officers responded to a radio call of a robbery investigation near
the area of Vermont Avenue and Venice Boulevard. When officers
arrived, they contacted the victim, who was being treated by Los
Angeles City Fire Department paramedics for an apparent laceration
to the neck.

The initial investigation determined that the victim was inside of
a laundromat, when the suspect approached her from behind and
grabbed the victim’s purse away and simultaneously slashed her neck
with a sharp object. The victim fell to the ground and suspect fled
the location.

As a result, the victim sustained a laceration to the neck which
required surgery.

around 5 feet 5 inches tall, weighing around 170 to 180 pounds,
with a thick dark goatee. He was wearing a gray baseball cap, all
