Woman says her purse was stolen in Glendale

A woman told police her purse was snatched by a man Friday as she walked on Adams Street.

The robbery occurred when a black car pulled up next to her at about 11:40 p.m. on Adams, near Stanley Avenue, and the passenger began saying something to her that she didn’t understand, according to Glendale police.

The rear passenger then rolled down his window and grabbed her purse from her left shoulder.

She tried holding on, but he was still able to pull it away, police said. The vehicle took off north on Adams.

Her purse reportedly contained $200 and cigarettes.

She described the driver as wearing dark-colored clothing and having dark hair and a mustache. The passenger, she said, had short black hair, brown eyes, was about 28 years old and wore a cream-colored shirt.

The rear passenger had brown hair, brown eyes, was about 20 years old, had tattoos on his right arm and was wearing a dark-colored shirt.
