Menlo Park robber rips off necklaces

 

A 72-year-old woman strolling along the 300 block of El Camino Real on Saturday afternoon in Menlo Park confronted a robber intent on ripping off her necklaces.

The suspect snatched three necklaces off the woman's neck, but his victim grabbed one back, police said. She sustained minor injuries during the scuffle.

Police described the robber as a Hispanic male about 5 feet 6 inches tall, weighing about 140 pounds, and around 18 to 23 years old. The suspect, wearing a white shirt, jumped into a black Honda waiting nearby driven by an unidentified person. The car fled north on El Camino Real.

Police spokesperson Nicole Acker said the two stolen necklaces are both 18-karat gold chains, one with two charms. Their combined value is approximately $260.

Detectives continue to investigate the robbery.

Anyone with information about this crime can call the police at 330-6300 or the anonymous tip hotline at 330-6395.
