A woman walking in the area of N. Main and Bonanza Street in Walnut Creek lost her purse to a man who exited a passing car with several men aboard and grabbed her purse Monday.
The incident was reported at approximately 9:55 p.m. with witnesses describing the car in question as a white four-door with 3-4 black males aboard – all in dark clothing.
The street theft, which of course took only seconds, cost the victim her purse, phone and personal papers but did not result in any physical injury.
UPDATE: In a subsequent social media posting, the husband of the woman wrote that one of the assailants was armed, flashed the gun, and that the others physically attacked his wife, yanking and pulling her to the “floor” before making off with her purse.
Police are currently on scene and investigating, witnesses said.
