Police looking for couple who robbed women of their purses and cell phone early Sunday

Police are looking for a man and woman who robbed a pair of women as they walked to their car after leaving the Liquid Nightclub early Sunday morning.

According to police, at about 1:10 a.m., a Hispanic female in her early 20s approached two women as they were getting in their car on Carlback Avenue, near the nightclub on Arroyo Drive.

The female robber asked one of the victims for a cigarette. When the woman reached into her purse, the female robber brandished a knife and grabbed the woman's purse. The robber ran to a waiting car and got into the passenger seat.

The second victim, showing some feistiness--or foolishness--approached the driver's side of that car. In the driver's seat was robber no. 2: a Hispanic male in his 20s. The second victim demanded her friend's purse back. The male robber reached out and grabbed her purse and cell phone, then sped away.

Police arrived and searched the area but with no luck.

Anyone with information on this robbery should call the Walnut Creek Police Department at: (925) 943-5844
