SAN DIEGO (CNS) - San Diego police Monday were on the lookout for a young man who punched a woman while snatching her purse in La Jolla.
The woman was getting out of her car in the 7900 block of Princess Street around 9:30 p.m. Sunday when a young man wearing a black and white mask approached and grabbed her purse, according to San Diego police Officer Dan Lasher.
A tug-of-war for the purse ensued before the man punched the woman in her face, he said.
He then fled with the purse in a small, dark sedan, Lasher said, adding that the car was last seen on Torrey Pines Road.
The woman suffered a cut to her cheek but was otherwise OK, he said.
Nikki Benedict was stabbed to death 47 years ago in Poway. Now almost 50 years later, there is a new lead.
The wife of a San Diego police officer accused of domestic violence is standing by her husband and thinks SDPD should do the same.
