Robber Drags Woman While Speeding From Scene of Bitter Lake Robbery

A woman told police she was dragged down the street by a robbery suspect Sunday night as he drove away with her purse.

The 43-year-old victim was walking near N. 135th and Aurora Avenue North shortly before 10 pm when the suspect—described only as hispanic male with short hair—pulled up alongside her in a gold four-door Honda.

The suspect got out of his car and grabbed the woman’s purse before he climbed back into his Honda and began to drive away.

The victim refused to let go of her purse, and was dragged a short distance by the suspect, who eventually fled with the woman’s purse, wallet and cell phone.

The woman sustained a skinned knee and may have fractured her hand in the incident. Medics transported the woman to Northwest Hospital for treatment.
