Authorities were looking today for a man and a woman who robbed a woman at gunpoint in Coachella.
The robbery was reported shortly after 4 p.m. Thursday Sept. 6 near Avenue 48 and Jackson Street. A woman walking in a parking lot was approached by a man and woman in a green sedan.
The man brandished a firearm and demanded ”property” from the woman, sheriff’s Sgt. Juan Zamora said.
“The victim complied with the suspect’s demands and relinquished her property,” Zamora said, adding that the suspects drove off in an unknown
direction. The woman wasn’t hurt.
Both suspects are Hispanic — the man was 20 to 25 years old, with a shaved head, wearing a dark-colored shirt. The woman was in her early 20s.
