Pedestrian Robbery 700-Block Saint Charles Av
On December 30 at 11:13 PM, police were dispatched to the 700-block of Saint Charles Ave for a snatch theft call.
The caller and her niece had left the Bookhouse Pub on Ponce de Leon Ave and began to walk north on Ponce de Leon Place toward the niece’s apartment in the 800-block of Ponce de Leon Pl.  As they crossed the intersection of Ponce De Leon Pl and Saint Charles Ave a skinny black male, approximately 5’9” in height wearing dark baggy clothing and possibly with a bald head, came from behind them and snatched at her purse.   
As the suspect pulled on the purse strapped across her body, the victim fell to the ground.  The second victim began to scream and hit the suspect with her purse, but the suspect continued to pull until victim 1’s purse strap broke.  The suspect then ran with Victim 1’s purse and got into the passenger side of a black in color sedan (possibly a Toyota Camry) that was parked about 100 ft east on Saint Charles Ave NE. There was someone else in the vehicle and the driver drove the vehicle backward towards Bonaventure Ave and then turned and drove north towards Greenwood Ave NE away from the scene.  A third witness took photos of the fleeing vehicle and said she believed it had a Florida license plate.  The photos were forwarded to police investigators.
The stolen purse was black in color and contained the victim’s Apple IPhone (pink case), her driver's license, her debit card (Chase bank), her keys to her home and $12 in cash.
The victim later received an email from Chase bank that her debit card had been used at a Chevron gas station in Decatur, GA for $35.48 and again at a BP gas station on Memorial Dr in Decatur, GA for $34.30.  In addition, the victim’s son tracked her cell phone and the last location of the phone was at 3497-3515 Robins Landing Way, Decatur, GA 30032.  The victim called and had Decatur police go by the location, but they advised her the location is an apartment complex and they could not determine exactly what apartment the phone was in.
1/14/2020 Commercial Burglary 600-Block Virginia Av
1/24/2020 Pedestrian Robbery 600-Block Virginia Av
Details forthcoming in next month’s report

Vehicle Break-Ins continue to be steady and this is a reminder to leave nothing visible in your vehicle.  The most effective way for these crimes to decrease is a clean vehicle. These crimes take seconds to commit and the criminals to disappear. Spread the Word to your neighbors…
If you see someone or something suspicious, please report it to the police.  When driving or out walking keep an eye out in the neighborhood, what you see and report just might prevent a crime.
