Police seek suspect in Central Park mugging
November 30, 2013, 05:00 AM Bay City News Service

Investigators are asking for the public’s help in identifying a suspect wanted in connection with a mugging in San Mateo’s Central Park on Tuesday, police said.

At about 6:15 p.m. Tuesday, a 24-year-old woman was walking her dog near the rose garden in Central Park when the suspect approached and struck the victim with an unknown object, according to police.

The suspect stole the woman’s purse and fled toward the Japanese Tea Garden, police said.

He is described as a dark-skinned man in his 20s, standing about 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighing about 160 pounds. He was wearing a green jacket and a black hat at the time of the mugging, police said.

The victim suffered injuries not considered life-threatening. She was treated by paramedics at the scene, according to police.

Officers searched the area but were unable to locate the suspect or witnesses.

Anyone with information about the mugging is asked to contact police at 522-7654 or the secret witness hotline at 522-7676.
