Police on Tuesday released a composite drawing of a suspect who beat up a woman during a purse-snatching on Valentine’s Day in Glendora.

The victim was assaulted and robbed at 8:25 p.m. Feb. 14 while waiting for a bus in the 2300 block of East Foothill Boulevard at 8:25 p.m., according to Detective Sgt. Marty Amaro.

The suspect approached the woman, whose name was withheld, and asked the time. When she looked up to answer him, he hit her several times in the face and dragged her about 30 feet before the straps on her purse broke, the investigator said.

He then ran north through a parking lot with her purse before getting into a newer model, full-sized, bronze-colored Chevrolet SUV.

The victim suffered facial cuts and additional cuts and bruises to her hip area.

The suspect was described as a white man in his late 20s, 5 feet 6 inches tall and weighing 170 pounds. He had light brown hair and was wearing a black beanie and a white T-shirt.

Anyone with information was asked to call Amaro at (626) 914-8281.
