Another strong-armed robbery occurred Jan. 7 in the Galleria parking
lot when a woman was walking to her car. A burgundy car rode up alongside
the woman and a passenger grabbed her purse, police said. The woman, who
would not let go of the purse, was dragged 20 feet and suffered cuts to
her legs, police said. The woman's purse had $132 in cash in it.
The third incident happened Monday. A Burbank woman who was driving
into the Galleria parking garage said a robber hit her over the head as
she was putting an access card into the parking gate, police said.
The robber then reached into her car and grabbed her purse, police
said. There was only $5 in the purse.
Glendale investigators believe the same suspects may be responsible
for all three robberies, said police spokesman Chahe Keuroghelian. But
they have no detailed descriptions of the suspects.
"They make it so fast the victims don't get a chance to see them,"
