Byline: SANDY STRICKLAND

A 33-year-old woman suffered multiple facial lacerations and abrasions and was knocked unconscious during a strong-arm robbery at 9 p.m. Oct. 16.

The incident began when the victim and a 35-year-old man drove to the Dumpsters near the Camri Green Apartments entrance at 3820 Losco Road to find boxes, police said.

He got out of his Lincoln Town Car and after a few minutes, heard the door open and someone yelling.

The victim told police she was trying to get out of the car when one of the robbers grabbed her purse. They began punching and kicking her, and she woke up face down on the ground.

When the victim's friend saw what was happening, police said, he grabbed one of the men. He saw the other knock her unconscious, and then he was thrown into the bushes.

Police interviewed the victims in the emergency room of Baptist Medical Center South. The victim's cell phone, purse and wallet valued at $300 were stolen.

- A 27-year-old man was biking to work when two men confronted him at 4:45 p.m. Oct. 16 in the 9500 block of San Jose Blvd. In Spanish, one demanded his money, police said. When he told him he didn't have any, the robber got mad and threw a beer bottle at him.

The victim got off his bike because he was afraid they were going to hurt him, police said. At that point, a motorist stopped and asked the victim if everything was all right. As the motorist got out of his vehicle, one of the robbers pulled out a knife, yelled an obscenity and asked if he wanted to die, police said.

The robbers then ran to a pharmacy on San Jose where they got into a four-door white vehicle parked in the lot.
