Benicia Pet Grooming Store Owner Assaulted and Robbed, Police Say

An assault and robbery was reported on Grant Street Saturday evening.

A Benicia business owner was pushed to the ground and her purse stolen over the weekend, police say.

Around 7:19 p.m. on Saturday, police were called to Mickee's Pet Grooming on Grant Street, where they found one of the shop's owners, Benicia Police Lt. Frank Hartlig said.

"She indicated to us she had been assaulted–pushed to the ground–and her purse was taken by an unknown suspect," Hartig said. "This individual then took off running north behind the 900 block of Grant Street."

The victim's purse contained several credit cards, about $90 in cash and a cell phone, Hartig said.

Police officers and a police K-9 searched the area but were unable to find the suspect.

The victim described her assailant as a white male adult standing between 5-foot-11 and 6-foot-2, weighing around 180 pounds and wearing a camoflauge or gray sweatshirt and dark pants.

A bystander witnessed the robbery, but neither the witness or victim got a good look at the suspect's face, Hartig said.

The victim was not injured in the robbery.

Bobbie- I've said it before and I'll say it again, YOU make this stuff about race, not me. Vallejo is pretty much 1/3 black, 1/3 White, and 1/3 Asian.

Just remember, when they take the guns from the good guys, the only people to have them will be the bad guys.. Save our Constitutional right to bear and carry arms to save this injustice as spoken.
