The LAPD this afternoon released a composite drawing of the man suspected of shooting a woman in the arm while attempting to steal her purse Saturday night in the 2300 block of Glendale Boulevard near a cluster of Silver Lake bars and restaurants. The suspect is described as “a thin-build, male Hispanic between 20 to 35 years of age. He stood 5 foot 8 inches and was last seen wearing a dark-blue, hooded sweatshirt.”
In a separate incident on Sunday night, a 20-year-old woman was beaten on Maltman Avenue during an attempted robbery in the Sunset Junction area of Silver Lake.
Silver Lake residents concerned about neighborhood crime can attend a previously scheduled meeting – hosted by the Silver Lake Improvement Assn. and the LAPD – on Thursday, April 15 at 6 pm. The meeting will be held at Virgin Mary Russian Orthodox Church, 650 Micheltorena St.
