Attempted Robbery

Posted on 28th December 2010 at 08:48

A 41 year-old woman claims that a man tried to rob her yesterday evening in downtown Longview. The woman called 911 at about 5:30 pm, from the 1500 block of 11th Avenue. She claims that the suspect grabbed her and tried to steal her money. He ran off when the woman pulled out her cell phone to call police. The suspect is described as a white male, about 6’3″, with a heavy build and some facial hair. She says he was wearing a puffy black jacket, and black pants. He ran off, and wasn’t located. Longview Police say that he may have gone to a nearby auto dealership, who called about an “unwanted man” in the showroom, a few minutes after this incident. Officers responded to that area, but didn’t find the man.
