Women Robbed At Gunpoint In Saugus
Acquaintance brings unwanted passenger to meet friend.
A female victim was robbed at gunpoint in the parking lot of the 7-Eleven store on Bouquet Canyon Road Tuesday night, losing an unknown amount of cash.
The victim told deputies that she was waiting in her car for a friend when around 9:45 p.m., the friend pulled up with an unknown male in his passenger seat.
The passenger got out of his car and entered the victim’s car and held a semiautomatic handgun to her face, demanding her purse, which he ransacked looking for cash.
He then got out of the car and returned to the first vehicle, a black Ford Expedition, which left the parking lot in an unknown direction.
The suspect is described as a male Hispanic, black hair, brown eyes, 5 feet 6 inches in height, weighing approximately 190 pounds, around 30 years of age. The driver of the car was described as a male black.
Deputies think the robbery may also be drug-related.
