Police were dispatched to the Regency Apartments on River Road in Nutley at 10:40 p.m. Thursday, July 7, in response to a robbery.
The victim, a West Orange woman visiting her mother, told officers that as she was exiting her car in the parking lot, she was approached by a black male, approximately 5’8” to 5’ 9” and of average build, short hair or shaved, wearing a white t-shirt, cargo pants and white sneakers.
She said the man pointed both hands at her, making a gun gesture, as he demanded two bags she was carrying. He then ripped her purse from her and fled south on River Road.
Police are hunting for the mugger.
