Man robbed while helping friend move


A 32-year-old Rochester man was robbed while helping his friend move early this morning.  

It happened in the 700 block of 1st Avenue Southwest.

The man told police that when he went to grab more items from a nearby truck, around 2 o'clock this morning, he came across a woman who was smoking by the door. 

She reached into her purse and implied she had a weapon, demanding money from the man. 

He gave her his wallet, which contained $250.

Police say the woman then jumped into an SUV that headed north on 1st Avenue southwest. Witnesses describe it as a black crossover SUV with customized wheels. 

The suspect is described as a black woman with straight shoulder length hair and a missing tooth. She is about 5'10'' tall, and appeared to be about 170 pounds. She also had a grey purse, a dark jacket, and spandex pants. 

Anyone that could help investigators should call crime stoppers at 800-222-TIPS.
