A 40 year old Dover Township woman reported that she had just parked her vehicle in the parking lot of the shopping center and was walking towards the stores. At that time a black two door vehicle pulled out of a spot and blocked her path. The vehicle was occupied by a white female and a white male. The vehicle occupants stopped and stared at the victim for several seconds and then proceeded towards the Carlisle Road exit of the parking lot.
The victim continued walking towards the store. Seconds later the male passenger of the vehicle came up behind her and grabbed her wallet out of the cart she was pushing. The male then began to run back towards his vehicle. The victim gave chase and began yelling at the male to gain the attention of bystanders. The male then threw the wallet, entered the passenger side of the vehicle and the vehicle sped off towards Carlisle Road.
The victim in this case was not injured and all of her property was recovered.
