Woodland police are seeking a robber who shoved an elderly woman in order to achieve his payday.
Sgt. Victoria Danzl said the woman and her husband were in line at the CVS store on West Main Street at about 4 p.m. Monday when the suspect, who was standing behind the couple, pushed the woman out of the way as the cashier opened the register.
“The clerk tried to shield the money with her arms and hands, but the suspect pushed his way into the drawer, removing an undisclosed amount in cash,” Danzl said in a news release. The robber then fled and was last seen running southeast away from the store.
The suspect fled the store and ran in a southeast direction. No injuries were reported.
Police are seeking a white male in his late 20s, about 6-foot-2 and unkempt, with shaggy blond hair, Danzl said. Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call the Woodland Police Department at (530) 661-7800.
