PASADENA >> A man pushed a woman to the ground and robbed her of a bag containing a laptop computer and other items Wednesday afternoon, officials said.
The crime took place about 5:45 p.m. as a 62-year-old Altadena woman was unloading items from the trunk of her car, parked at Catalina Avenue and Claremont Street, Pasadena police Lt. Kelly Evans said.
At least two suspects approached in a car, and one of them got out of the vehicle, approached the woman and demanded her purse, the lieutenant said.
The woman pulled her purse away from the man, so he grabbed another bag he was holding, pushed her to the ground, Evans said. The robber returned to the car, which drove off.
The stolen bag contained a laptop computer, among other items, he said. The woman complained of pain, but declined to be taken to a hospital.
A detailed description of the suspects or their car was not available.
