According to a recent release from Lt. Ron Izuka of the Culver City Police Dept., on Oct. 20 at 10:50 pm, “a female (victim) was walking to her residence in the 4100 block of Van Buren Place, after parking her vehicle on the street. The victim noticed a Hispanic male (suspect) walking behind her. The suspect approached the victim and asked for directions, while concealing unknown object behind his back. Eventually, the suspect pulled out a rifle. The suspect attempted to steal the victim’s purse, but she resisted. In time, the suspect lost interest and ran southbound Van Buren Place into a white, older model Acura.”
Now, I don’t know how many women around here think that holding onto a purse is more important than being threatened with a rifle, but I think we should change that designation of (victim) to (winner).
