Police Release Video Footage of Necklace-Nabbing Robber

By City News Service

Police Wednesday released video footage in hopes of identifying a man who robbed a woman of a gold necklace by pulling it from her neck in Boyle Heights, and who may be responsible for similar crimes in the area.

The robbery occurred about 6 p.m. on April 8 in the area of East Eighth Street and Evergreen Avenue, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

Nearby surveillance cameras show the man arriving in a dark blue 1993 to 1995 Chevrolet Blazer, pulling the gold chain from the woman’s neck and fleeing in the same vehicle, police said.

He’s described as Hispanic, in his early 30s, 5 feet 7 to 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighing about 180 pounds.

The Blazer had mag rims, chrome door handles and a side view mirror.

Anyone with information was asked to call Detective Miguel Barajas at (323) 342-8991. The video can be seen at www.lapdtv.org.
