The Los Angeles Police Department is asking for the public’s help in searching for a woman nicknamed the Sexy Robber, who committed an armed heist in Van Nuys, Calif, on Sept. 19.
The high-heel-clad criminal “posed as a customer and then pulled a gun out of her purse,” according to an LAPD statement. While police are not disclosing the exact location of the robbery, it appears from security camera images to be a jewelry store.
The woman pointed her gun at a store employee and ordered him to fill up her handbag. Fearing for his life, the employee complied. The robber took the goods and fled the scene on foot.
The LAPD is describing the suspect as a Hispanic woman with brown hair and brown eyes in her 20s. She is about five feet five inches and weighs about 125 pounds. At the time of the robbery, she was wearing a white blouse, blue jeans and high-heeled sandals. She was carrying a black and white handbag.
Police are saying she should be considered armed and dangerous.
