San Diego County Crime Stoppers along with investigators from the San Diego Police Department’s Robbery Unit are asking for the public’s help in locating an unknown suspect wanted for a robbery and carjacking that occurred in the San Ysidro area of San Diego.
On March 29, 2018, at 9:00 a.m., an 82-year-old female victim arrived at her residence located in the 200 block of West Park Avenue, in San Diego. The victim went inside her residence and found a male suspect burglarizing it. The suspect pushed the victim to the ground and threatened her with a knife. The suspect stole various items from the victim. The suspect also demanded the victim’s car keys and left the residence in the victim’s silver Toyota Camry, which was later recovered a few blocks away. The victim was transported to a local hospital and sustained multiple bruises and abrasions to her hands and head.
The investigation revealed the suspect had forced open a bedroom window and was ransacking the residence when the victim came home and interrupted the burglary.
The suspect is described as a Hispanic male, 30-years-old, 5’7” tall, thin to normal build, thin mustache, wearing a black zip-up hooded sweatshirt with a white design on the front of it and black pants.
