Los Angeles police are seeking the public’s help in identifying and locating a suspect who allegedly robbed a 90-year-old woman of an undisclosed amount of cash inside her Westchester home Monday, July 27th.
The incident occurred at about 4 p.m. at a home in the 8000 block of Chase Avenue, near Loyola Marymount University, where the suspect knocked on the front door and identified himself as a UPS driver with a delivery, police said.
