Morgan Hill police seeking violent robbery suspect

Morgan Hill police have released a sketch of the suspect involved in an assault and robbery that took place last week.

According to authorities, a 19-year-old woman was alone in her vehicle driving on Watsonville Road near Monterey Road at about 9:20 p.m. on February 22 when she was rear-ended by another vehicle.

The driver of the other vehicle reportedly motioned to the victim to pull over, which she did in order to exchange insurance information. But instead of providing his information, the suspect punched the victim multiple times until she fell to the ground, snatched her purse from her car, and fled the scene.

Investigation revealed that the suspect vehicle had been stolen earlier in the evening out of San Jose. It was later recovered abandoned on February 25 and Morgan Hill detectives are working with San Jose police to obtain evidence from the vehicle.

The suspect is described as being Hispanic in his early 20s with medium length brown hair and a light goatee. He was wearing denim shorts and a black hooded sweatshirt at the time of the assault.

Anyone with information on the case is asked to contact Det. Scott Martin at (408) 779-2101
