Manhattan Beach police seek purse-snatching suspects
The Manhattan Beach police are looking for a trio believed to be suspects in a strong arm robbery outside Manhattan Village last month.
On Nov. 29 at approximately 8:19 p.m., a man described as a 6-foot-tall adult approached a woman from behind and snatched her cell phone and purse, according to police. He then entered a white four-door sedan, which was occupied by two women. The victim’s credit card was used shortly after to make purchases at two Target locations in Hawthorne and Inglewood.
The victim sustained a small cut to her finger and declined medical attention, according to police.
MBPD on Friday released a photo of the trio from a surveillance footage which shows them leaving a Target location. The first suspect is described as a male adult between 20 and 25 years old, last seen wearing a white t-shirt, red sweatpants and yellow sneakers. The second suspect is described as a female adult between 20 and 25 years old, last seen wearing a black shirt and gray sweatpants, and the third suspect is a female adult between 20 and 25 years old, last seen wearing a white/gray long-sleeved shirt, pink pants and a maroon beanie.
Anyone with information regarding this crime or its suspects should contact MBPD Det. Michael Rosenberger at 310-802-5127.
