CRIME ALERT: On December 23, 2013 at approximately 11:30 P.M., a female resident was walking home in the 200 block of W. Grandview Ave when two male suspects robbed her. The victim was walking while talking on her cell phone, when two African American males in their twenties, wearing hoodie sweatshirts confronted her. As the suspects attempted to steal the victim’s purse, a struggle took place and the two suspects pushed the victim against a nearby wall and ultimately stole the victim’s purse. The two males were last seen running westbound on Grandview to an awaiting vehicle which was driven by a third suspect. The suspect vehicle is described as a small, dark colored sedan with possibly tinted windows with a headlight out. Although this type of crime is very unusual for Sierra Madre it is not unusual for crimes of this nature to occur during the Christmas Holiday season. Anyone that may have seen a suspicious vehicle in the area or witnessed this crime are urged to contact the Sierra Madre Police Department at 355 -1414. Remember “If you see something say something".
