PublicÕs assistance needed to identify gold chain robbery suspect
On Friday, October 4, 2013, Fremont Patrol Officers responded to the parking lot of the Walmart Store on Osgood Rd. to investigate a gold chain robbery.Ê The victim, a 70 year old female, was with her family and exiting the Walmart Store on Friday night when she was approached from behind by a suspect who grabbed her gold chain necklace.
The shocked victim attempted to grab hold of her necklace as she was pulled from behind by the suspect.Ê A brief struggle occurred until the suspect slammed the 70 year old woman to the ground.Ê He then began to drag her for a short distance until he was able to obtain a portion of her gold chain.Ê His counterpart, an adult female, fled to a nearby getaway vehicle where she waited for him.Ê The male entered the vehicle and the two suspects fled the scene.Ê Officers arrived within minutes and found the victim in an extreme amount of pain.Ê She was transported to a local hospital with a serious injury which required surgery and hospitalization.
Based upon the review of video surveillance from within the store, the two suspects stalked the victim and her family as they were shopping.Ê The male suspect at one point even made a motion with his arms as if he is shooting the victim as his target with a rifleÊwhile he followed her.Ê The two suspects followed the female victim and her family out of the store and into the parking lot, where the robbery then occurred. The suspects are described as:
Suspect #1 NOW IN CUSTODY: White or light skin Hispanic male, 18-25 years old, 5'07" - 5'10" tall with a medium to stock build, black or dark hair shaved short with close faded sides.Ê He was wearing a black shirt with white and red writing on the front and jeans.
