The unknown Hispanic woman, who is no older than 25, was walking on the 4800 block of Melrose Avenue when a male robber approached her from behind and shot her with a stun gun on the back of her neck. The suspect then pulled the woman to the ground and attempted to steal her purse.

 

According to the Los Angeles Police Department’s (LAPD) January 29 press release, a group of witnesses chased the suspect, who was later identified as 22-year-old David Victor Thomas, and held him captive until police arrived. The victim immediately left the scene after the incident. 

 

In an updated January 30 press release, the victim spoke to police at the LAPD’s Hollywood station after watching the crime on the news. After realizing that officials wanted to interview her, she came forward to report the crime.  

 

No further information regarding the victim’s identity was shared with Canyon News, but the press release describes the woman as Hispanic with long hair. She weighs between 130 to 150 pounds, and only speaks Spanish.
