Police: Man Robs Woman Walking in Temecula

The alleged robbery was reported at about 1:40 a.m. Wednesday on Pechanga Parkway near Clubhouse Drive, police said.

A woman was thrown on the ground and robbed of her wallet while walking near a Temecula intersection early Wednesday morning, police said.

The alleged robbery was reported at about 1:40 a.m. Wednesday on Pechanga Parkway near Clubhouse Drive, said Temecula police Sgt. K. McDonald, in a news release.

McDonald said an investigation by responding officers revealed that a young woman was walking on Pechanga Parkway when she noticed a car parked on Clubhouse Drive.

Police learned the man got out of his car and walked toward the woman on Pechanga Parkway, McDonald said.

"When the male got close to the female he grabbed her by the arm and threw her to the ground," McDonald said. "The male jumped on top of the female and the two began to struggle. The male yelled at the victim to, 'Shut up!' He then grabbed the victim's wallet from her hand and fled back to his vehicle."

The suspect then got back into his car—described as an older model compact car, possibly a metallic-green Honda Civic—and drove southbound on Pechanga Parkway, McDonald said.

The suspect was described as an approximately 30-year-old dark-complected black man who stands about 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighs about 160 pounds.

Police asked anyone with further information regarding the alleged crime to call Investigator Dickey at the Temecula Police Department, 951-696-3000.

I wonder if the young woman had $1.6 million in her purse. and owed the City of Temecula $-thousands in unpaid rent. See YMCA story here.

Women its not safe to walk anywhere in the night or even day alone. Probably men to as bad as its getting out there. Don't go to the bank, atm, gas station, grocery store or mall alone. I know the ole says "you are more likely to die in a plane crash", but I rather no one take any chances, wait until a man can go with you. ***Gasp @ Gal Cann, LOL***

Americans don't walk they drive in steel boxes with 4 wheels. They don't know any better.!!! our Local sensational TV media has conditioned people to a point of near paranoia.98% of local TV media news is just trash and worthless..

RESPONSE TO :: JJ Mclure. Hey you what do U mean . Are you referring to a Black cloud about to burst over your head ,with torrential rain and lightning bolts.. Then I agree..."you be prepared" Please qualify your statement, because some people could construe it to mean "when a Black jaguar with razor sharp claws approaches you be prepared" OK Dude Chiil..... and burn a giant spliff to relax your very agile mind.

It is always wise, to be aware of your surroundings when walking ANY street Late at night. People are desperate and are willing to go to any lengths to rob you. JJ Mclure, you are ignorant.

Brenda you are so correct, I have two sisters and I drive them crazy with my safety lectures. (I do not harp on them.) Luckily, one is a 2nd degree black belt and the other is kick boxer, both scare the crap out of me….
Brenda December 01, 2012 at 01:01 AM
SA!!! Give me their numbers. When I need to go somewhere I will call them up.!! Now that is the kind of walking buddy every person needs. They might consider that a business.
REZ10 December 01, 2012 at 01:12 AM
Typical response when 1 has no legitimate response. A voice, yes...silly nonsense - keep to Ur self. The lot of U only whine and complain...this city has such low crime yet none of U R ever satisifed.
Brenda December 01, 2012 at 03:40 AM
REZ you do not keep up with the news. Temecula was safe in 2010. There was an increase alone in 2011 of around 30% in violent crime in Temecula. As you should know our crime in 2012 is outrageous, with 30 home burglaries contributed to one gang of 4 alone. Not to count the other countless burglaries, robberies, assaults, attempted murder, murder, Dui' with and without murdered victims, etc. etc. So when you keep yourself apprised of our town and whats happening in it good and bad, then get back to us.

Brenda, I have to agree with REZ10 in some parts. Our crime rate may be going up, personally, I don't keep track of it, I just read about stuff in the newspaper. But, REZ10 has a point. Our crime rate is really low and way better than Hemet or other surronding cities. I read the newspaper every day and every day is the same cities with crime. Corona, Riverside, Moreno Valley, a lot of San Bernidino, L.A., and lots of other cities. I am too lazy to go and check the newspaper right now. Crime rates may be going up but how many times have you heard about a women getting robbed in Temecula in a month compared to Hemet.
REZ10 December 02, 2012 at 10:38 AM
Brenda, Ur so scared U might want to move to Menifee so U can start construction on Ur underground bunker as soon as possible. U will never B satisifed...the crime here is so low compared to many cities, yet U have no clue. DUIs???? what place doesn't have those? Murder....really? In Temceula and Murriteta, more often then not the one committing the crime will have some familial/friendship connection. There are very few murders in this area where the victim is unknown to the suspect. I can't remember the last drive by shooting in the area. Yeah, no...can't remember a whole bunch of home invasions either. Ur going to have to spend more time then U alreay do on the internet there Chicken Little. I'll sart calling U TMZ...since U can't get Ur facts right either. Remember to start prepi'n for the Zombie and the upcoming pandemics...get a life already!

REZ10 What a great name . In the Santa Cruz mountains we used to use REZI paper to roll big fat spliffs.. Even the world's best CIGARS the Havana CIGAR made in Cuba do not use REZI paper.. Bye the way, if our controllers the Fed. Gov. catch you buying or smoking a Havana Cigar they throw you in jail. and label you a criminal. DO as they tell yo or else ...in the so-called "Land of the Free" I am still waiting an answer about the woman thrown to the grown and had he purse wallet taken. Did she have . $1.6 million in her purse. and owed the City of Temecula $-thousands in unpaid rent like the YMCA .. Are the managers of YMCA in jail ?
Cononwind December 02, 2012 at 09:08 PM
Why was she walking at 1 am in the first place? The guy must have saw her win some money and that's why she got jumped.
Brenda December 03, 2012 at 12:56 AM
Definately NOT smart of her.
Brenda December 03, 2012 at 01:01 AM
REZ10 You proved it, you do not read posts. I did not type home invasions, its robberies, burglaries. My facts are spot on with the those unfortunately and most were in the Patch, go back and research them all. Some chains were not in the Patch. Chains because there is more then one contributed to the same group. This does not include the popular car break-ins. Also, from here on out you are being ignored. Find another victim to stalk or go and crawl back under your rock.
