Colorado Springs police are searching for a man who held up a woman at gunpoint.
Around 8:30 Wednesday night, a woman was walking from the trailer court on the 5100 block of Airport Road to the nearby Loaf and Jug near Airport Road and Airport Creek Point. A man approached her, pointing a gun, and stole the woman’s wallet from her purse. The suspect fled the scene on foot with the wallet in hand. Despite setting up a large containment area and deploying a K-9 unit, police were unable to locate the suspect.
The man has been described as Hispanic, standing about 5-foot-8, with a thin mustache. He was wearing a large and puffy dark-colored jacket, making his build hard to determine. The man was also wearing a black beanie and dark jeans.
Anyone with any information that may help police solve this crime are asked to call Crime Stoppers at 634-STOP.
