A bystander comes to the rescue of a woman being robbed in Santa Maria. It happened yesterday around 6:00 p.m. in the Sears parking lot at 200 Town Center.
Santa Maria police officers say a 68-year-old Guadalupe woman was walking from Sears when a suspect grabbed her purse and tried to pull it from her. The woman held on, and the suspect knocked her to the ground. The woman continued to keep hold of her purse, and the suspect pull her about 15 feet. Then, a bystander saw the incident and yelled at the man. The suspect let go of the purse and ran toward the intersection of Main and Miller.
The woman suffered a bruised hip and a bump on the back of her head. She described the suspect as a Hispanic man around 30 years old. The victim says the suspect was around 5' 7'' and 180 lbs, wearing a black and brown striped shirt and a shoelace for a belt.
Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers.
