Police: Robber Punches Girl, Steals iPod, Mother's Purse

Police are looking for two men in connection to the incident that happened in San Jacinto this weekend.

Police are asking for the public's help in locating two men believed to be responsible for robbing a girl and her mother in San Jacinto.

Police reports indicate the girl was first punched, then robbed of her iPod, while her mother was then robbed of her purse, by two black male adults.

Sheriff's Sergeant M. Larson put the message out Monday for the two men who are described as follows: 

  • Suspect #1 is 5'08, 150 lbs, last seen wearing a red and grey striped hooded jacket and dark jeans.
  • Suspect #2 is 5'05, 150 lbs, last seen wearing a black hat with a red and green emblem, a black jacket and dark jeans. 

According to Larson, the alleged incident happened Sunday in a parking lot in the 1500 block of South San Jacinto Avenue, near Esplanade Avenue, when the two women were approached by the men described above, while getting out of their car.

"One suspect punched the daughter and took her iPod," Larson said.  "Another suspect approached her mother and demanded her purse and property."

Two two suspects then left the parking lot in what was described as a dark colored, older model, unknown make van.

Ken, THAT is a "PC I.D." Guess they are more interested in saving feelings, then catching imbeciles.....Although, if they were white fellas it woulda said so right off...So I figger since they let thier mom's dress 'em funny, I'd go with black guys---although being short (chort?), perhaps some sorta Hispanics...But then again, "Dinks" ain't knowed as "Dinks" because of their towering height....jes' sayin. And maybe now I done pizzed off Black folks, Asian's, and Hispanics---but in my defense, that is what happens when ya gotta fill in the BLANKS.

I apologize-- The police description does also have "two black male adults" and I thought I had that in the original article above the bullet points. I've added that into the article.
