2900 block Waunona Way


Male, black, 30's, thin build, dilated pupils, wearing a grey tank top and shorts


Female, age 55, Madison


A Waunona Way resident had a strange man approach her in the driveway of her home, and by the time he left her purse was gone. She had just returned to her house, and placed the purse on the trunk of her car as she picked a few weeds. The woman asked the man if she could help him, and he made strange statements about wanting to see the view from her home, and ended up criticizing her property. She did not realize her purse was missing until after he departed. He had been pushing a bicycle.
