Police in Roseville are looking for a suspect involved in a strong-arm robbery June 24 on the city’s north end.
Police said the suspect — described as a middle-aged black man, approximately 5 feet 9 inches tall and wearing camouflage shorts, a cutoff shirt and light-colored ball cap — used force to rob a Roseville resident walking near Voiland and Gratiot at 10 p.m.
According to the victim’s statement, the suspect approached her from behind uttering something incoherent before pushing her to the ground and fleeing on foot with the victim’s black computer bag, which contained cash, credit cards, a cellphone and other miscellaneous goods.
The victim, who was walking with the assistance of a cane, suffered abrasions to her face and forehead when shoved to the ground, but police said she did not request medical attention.
Anyone with information regarding this incident is urged to call the Roseville Police Department at (586) 775-2100.
