Knife-Wielding Assailant Robs Woman

There’s no sign of the man who robbed a woman at knife-point just before 3 o’clock Wednesday afternoon.

The victim was sitting in a car on Eastgate and Tramview Roads on the north side of Palm Springs, on the edge of Desert Highland Park.

Her friends had just gotten out of the car to take pictures of the snow-capped mountains.

It took just an instant for a man with a knife to threaten the woman, and grab her purse.

He’s described as a black man, 18-25 years old.

The victim was not physically hurt.

Anyone with any information should call Crimestoppers at 760-341-STOP.
