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 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.
