Up to a $1000 Reward Offered
San Diego County Crime Stoppers along with investigators from the San Diego Police Department’s Central Division are asking for the public’s assistance in identifying and locating two suspects who violently assaulted and robbed an adult male while he was sitting at the MTS trolley platform, located at 1910 Harbor Drive in San Diego.
On April 18, 2018, between 7:30 p.m. and 8:00 p.m., the 19-year-old victim was sitting on a bench at the Harbor Drive trolley platform looking at his cell phone. A female and male suspect walked onto the trolley platform and began casing the victim. The male suspect walked toward the victim and without provocation or warning, punched the victim once in the face. The male suspect then grabbed the victim and threw him on the ground. While the victim was on the ground, the female suspect calmly walks over to the bench and takes the victim’s backpack. Both suspects were last seen walking northbound on Cesar Chavez Parkway.
The victim suffered several facial lacerations and lost a tooth as a result of being punched.
White or Hispanic male, early to late 20’s, approximately 5’8” to 6’0” tall, medium build, wearing tan pants, black t-shirt, camouflage baseball style hat (possibly with a Peanuts cartoon – “Snoopy” character on it). His right hand was possibly wrapped in some type of bandage.
