Just In: Newark Police Searching For This Woman, Victim Punched

On Sunday afternoon, September 29, 2019, at about 12:45, a female victim was seated at a restaurant on East Main Street. While seated at the table, the victim felt her purse moving and turned to find that her credit cards were missing, according to Lt Andrew Rubin. As the victim stated out loud that her cards were missing, a female seated at a table behind the victim stood up and left the business.

The victim and members of the group she was with went to confront the suspect. When they began to speak with the suspect, she ran eastbound on East Main Street. One of the members of the group, a 19-year-old female, caught up with the suspect in the area of East Main Street and Center Street. The suspect then punched the female victim in the face and ran north on Center Street to eastbound New Street, said Lt Andrew Rubin. The victim did not sustain any physical injury and did not require medical treatment.

The suspect is described as a black female wearing a white hat, white Adidas shirt, gray pants, and white shoes.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call Officer Maiura at (302) 366-7100 x. 3495 or amaiura@newark.de.us.
