A woman received a leg injury after she tried to get her purse back from the criminals who snatched it from her in Pleasant Hill’s Crescent Plaza on Tuesday.
The crime occurred just before 2pm near the Verizon Wireless store.
Police say the suspect vehicle drove up, a man jumped out and grabbed the purse, which was sitting on the trunk of the victim’s vehicle while she was loading items into her car. The suspect then got back into the moving vehicle, and as they were leaving, the victim tried unsuccessfully to grab her purse. During the attempt to regain her property, she was dragged a short distance by the suspect’s vehicle and received minor injuries to her leg, police said.
Police say the suspect’s vehicle was a 1990′s tan or brown Ford Taurus with a yellow Pena Motors paper dealership license plate.
The suspect is described as black male in his early 20′s with braded hair. There were also three black male adults inside the suspect’s vehicle.
