Woodland police are investigating the city’s second knifepoint robbery in three days.
A 24-year-old Bellflower man reported being robbed at about 1:10 p.m. Wednesday while sitting in his vehicle outside the Autumn Run Apartments, 1180 Matmor Road, Sgt. Jason Brooks said. The suspect reportedly reached through the open driver’s window and took his wallet off his lap.
When the victim followed him, the suspect brandished a folding knife and warned him to back away, Brooks said. The wallet, minus the cash, later was recovered in the apartment complex.
The suspect was described as Latino male in his early 20s, 5-foot-6 and 280 pounds, wearing a red T-shirt and black gym shorts. He also had a tattoo with cursive lettering on his left inner arm.
On Monday night, a 17-year-old boy was robbed at knifepoint in the 700 block of Beamer Street. Anyone with information about either incident is asked to call the Woodland Police Department at 530-666-2411.
