Take a good look at this suspect who robbed, punched victim. Sacramento sheriff wants him.
The Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department is looking for a suspect they say assaulted another customer in a south Sacramento liquor store last month before stealing his money.
About 1:55 a.m. March 24, the suspect and a male accomplice walked into the Liquor King at 5620 Franklin Blvd. to buy beer. A man walked up to the suspect while he was making his purchase and offered to help him pay for the alcohol, according to a Sheriff’s Department news release.
In response, the suspect punched the victim in the face, rendering him unconscious upon impact. The suspect then picked up the man’s wallet, took money and fled with his accomplice. The victim woke up eight minutes later.
Security footage shows the suspect to be a Hispanic man, 5 feet 4 to 5 feet 8 inches tall, in his 20s, who weighed 180 to 200 pounds and had short dark hair and a mustache.
He was wearing a black No. 23 Jordan-brand basketball jersey with red lettering and white trim over a black T-shirt as well as dark jeans, white shoes with black soles and laces, and a gold necklace with a circular medallion at the time of the robbery.
