LAPD seeks leads in South L.A. robbery, shooting
The attackers confronted the woman about 8 a.m. Jan. 12 as she walked near her car by 47th and Main streets, the Los Angeles Police Department said.
One of the men grabbed the woman's purse and, during a struggle, she was shot once in the back, according to the LAPD. She was taken to a hospital and survived.
The pair fled in a vehicle. The suspect on the passenger's side was described as African American, 25 to 30 years old, about 5 feet 9 inches tall and about 170 pounds. He had black, curly, neck-length hair and light-brown eyes, the LAPD said. The driver was described only as a black male.
Anyone with information is asked to call Det. Humpherys or Det. Matsuda at (323) 846-6572.
