SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A 21-year-old man was jailed Saturday for allegedly stealing a San Diego State University student's backpack, which contained her laptop computer, credit cards and textbooks, University police said.
The suspect, identified by police and jail records as Nexsan Gowolo, approached a student sitting in front of a campus building and asked for directions, according to a SDSU Police Department report.
As the student began to answer, the suspect allegedly lunged forward, tore the backpack from her shoulder and got into a waiting silver Pontiac Grand Am with a black male adult driver, police said. The victim was not injured.
San Diego police officers stopped the vehicle near campus, and university police took Gowolo into custody, according to police and jail records.
Gowolo was booked into San Diego Central Jail for suspicion of robbery and was held in lieu of $100,000 bail, according to jail records.
