March 21, 2011

A woman was robbed of her purse while standing in her Wauwatosa garage Saturday night.

According to the Wauwatosa police report:

The homeowner pulled her vehicle into the garage in the 6500 block West Lloyd Street about 8 p.m. Saturday and noticed a man walking toward her. As she exited her car, he said, "Give me your purse."

His hand was in his pocket. While he didn't mention a weapon, his actions implied he had a gun, the victim said.

She followed his direction and turned over the purse. Then he ordered her back into her vehicle while he ran off.

She described the robber as a black man with a light complexion in his late 20s. He was about 6 feet to 6-foot-2. He had a scarf covering most of his face and was wearing a stocking hat and baggy dark jacket and pants.
