Woman hands over purse in armed robbery
June 01, 2013, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

A woman was approached by a man with a gun in the San Bruno Target parking lot Thursday night before giving him her purse, as demanded, according to police.

At about 6:20 p.m., San Bruno police responded to an armed robbery call at 1150 El Camino Real. The victim, who had just exited her vehicle, was approached by a man with a handgun who demanded her purse, according to a press release by San Bruno police. After handing over her purse, the suspect got into a waiting vehicle — a champagne colored four-door Oldsmobile Cutlass — with two others inside and drove off, according to police.

The three suspects were described as black and in their 20s. The man who brandished a gun was wearing all dark clothes, was about 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighed 160 pounds, according to police.

Anyone with information about the crime is encouraged to call the police department, 616-7100, or provide information anonymously by email at
