Woman Robbed in ShopRite Parking Lot

Incident occurred behind the Hauppauge supermarket last week.

A woman walking to her vehicle behind the ShopRite in Hauppauge was robbed of her pocketbook last week, according to Suffolk Police. 

Police said a male in his late teens or early 20s approached the woman in the parking lot around 6:43 p.m. last Friday and grabbed her purse. A struggle ensued and the woman's jacket was cut with what may have been a knife, police said. 

The robber fled with the pocketbook, but then left it in the parking lot after being chased by several witnesses, police said. 

The robber is described as being about 5-foot-9, 160 pounds and he was wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt, a cap and blue jeans at the time, police said. No arrests have been made.

"The robber is described as being about 5-foot-9, 160 pounds and he was wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt, a cap and blue jeans at the time, police said. No arrests have been made. " A bit P.C. with the description don't ya think?

I've felt before that the back lot was too poorly lit and deserted. I tried the "Shop at Home" service once, went to the back lot to pick it up, and felt creeped out. It took a long time to attract any employee's attention at the back door. Never used the service again. Not worth the risk.

You have to ask white or black? Time to have the cops patrol more in the parking lots. Lights on or not, if they want to target you they will. Look at what happened in NJ in December in a lit garage? No one is safe today.

Surprised they can even say " It was a man " , very insensitive to assume .

Insensitive? The guy robbed her. I am sure she saw his face and heard his voice, what more proof do you need?

@ P.J. - Easy big guy. Sarcasm, yet, this is where we're headed. A completely politically correct world in the media. Like it or not. This country is being force fed , re-educated, this more "civilized" way to think. You, and I , are now part of the minority. Get used to it.
