Early Friday evening at about 6:20 PM (Jan 22nd) a female became the second robbery victim in three days in the parking lot of the 99 Ranch Market located in the 1300 block south Golden West. A burgundy 4-door sedan pulled along side the female while she walked in the parking lot toward her car. A male passenger leaned out and grabbed the victim's purse, forcing it away from the victim. The suspect vehicle then drove off exiting the lot to eastbound on Duarte Road. The victim described the suspect passenger as a male Hispanic, 30's, 5'-08"/165 lbs, wearing a black jacket.
The first robbery occurred on Wednesday at about 3;30 PM when a female victim was knocked to the ground and kicked by a suspect. The loss was also a purse in that robbery. In both robberies the suspect vehicle is described as a 4-door, maroon or burgundy in color.
