A woman was punched in the face, thrown into her van and had her purse taken while she was moving groceries to her home.
According to the Wauwatosa police report:
The woman had finished grocery shopping at 9:54 p.m. June 19 and was moving bags between her car and her home in the 1200 block of 68th Street when two males walked up to her and asked if she needed any help. While not directly denying them, she made a noise indicating that she didn't need help.
In response, one of the males punched her in her right eye, sending her reeling into the driver's seat of her car. As she fell, the second male snatched her purse, containing a wallet, credit cards, her driver's license, a cellphone and roughly $40 in cash. They both ran to a nearby vehicle and drove off.
She received a black eye but did not seek medical attention.
