Alleged Strong Arm Robber

A scary scene allegedly played out in Mendota Wednesday night.

Officers say a man approached a woman at Road Ranger, demanding that she hand over her purse.  The man allegedly hit the victim several times, took her purse and fled the truck stop in a black, or dark colored newer model Chevy Equinox. 

The suspect is described as being an older African American man with grey facial hair.  He was wearing a dark hoodie, blue and grey plaid pajama pants, and black shoes. 

If you have any information, call the Mendota P.D.
