A 27-year-old woman told Stockton Police that she parked her car near the corner of S. Manthey Rd. and Carolyn Weston Blvd. just after 7 p.m. on Saturday and then took her dog for a walk.
Shortly after she got out of her car, a purple PT Cruiser pulled up next to her. The driver, a black man in his 40s, got out with a machete and started walking towards her.
She back away, but the man took her purse then ran away. Cops found the car parked about two miles away on Mosswood Ave. and towed it for evidence.
