ANOTHER CVP SCOOP: A strong-arm robber lay in wait for a Saddle Brook woman who told police he grabbed her purse and ran as she walked to her front door on a quiet dead-end street last night.
Police were called after a Garden Street neighbor heard the middle-aged woman’s screams around 11:30 p.m., Police Chief Robert Kugler told CLIFFVIEW PILOT .
The victim told police she pulled up to her home, parked on the street and was waking up her front steps when the dark-skinned, 6-foot-tall, medium-built robber ran up, grabbed her gold-colored purse and ran down the street.
Inside were credit cards, cash and her ID, Kugler said.
The woman said she screamed as he got into a light-colored SUV that fled onto Saddle River Road.
The victims purse contained her personal identification documents, credit cards, and cash.
Police were reviewing area surveillance video of the getaway vehicle.
