BRIDGEPORT, Conn. – Bridgeport police are investigating the armed robbery of a woman who was in her car in her mother's driveway, a spokesman said.
The armed robbery was reported at 132 Arthur St. at 4:44 a.m. Monday, said Kevin Coughlin, Bridgeport's public safety spokesman.
The victim – a 25 year-old woman from Stratford – said that she pulled into her mother's driveway to drop off her son, Coughlin said.
The suspect then came up to the driver’s side door and demanded that the woman give up her purse, he said. She complied, and the suspect fled the scene, Coughlin said.
Her purse and it contents were later recovered – except for $60 in cash, he said.
The suspect was described as a 5-foot-9 black male wearing a black mask, a black sweater, and black sweatpants.
Anyone with information on this case is asked to call the Bridgeport Police at 203-576-1311.
