Second strong-arm robbery Monday; suspect sought

A woman parking her car at her home in the 1500 block of Geary Road was robbed of her purse Monday evening. Walnut Creek police say the robber approached the woman as she pulled into her residence in her car. The robber demanded her purse. She handed it over to him, and he ran off.

The robbery is described as a Hispanic or black male adult, 20 to 30 years old, 5 feet 11 inches, with a thin build, clean shaven, and wearing a blue fleece jacket, blue beanie, and dark colored pants.

Officers checked the area without finding anyone. Anyone with information should contact the Walnut Creek Police Department at (925) 943-5844.

He was hustling for change at the Chevron Station on Sunday. Same build, same clothes. He looked like he was on crack. Lots of panhandlers in that zone now. Best to stay clear of the area

That's what happens when you turn 555yvr into low-income housing!

Those are low-income homes, but they are for seniors (55+) only. The perp obviously does not live there.
