SAN LEANDRO (CBS SF) – Police were asking for the public’s help to find a man who robbed and assaulted a woman as she was getting her baby out of a vehicle in San Leandro Wednesday night.

The victim drove up to her home in the 1500 block of Anchorage Drive at around 10 p.m. with her 10-month-old baby and 18-year-old daughter, police said.

As the woman was removing her baby from the vehicle, a man grabbed her from behind and tried to grab her purse.

The suspect punched the woman in the face and threw her to the ground, according to police.

The victim’s daughter tried to help her and screamed for help. The suspect ran away with the purse and was seen getting into a white four-door sedan with tinted windows.

The woman was taken to a hospital to be treated for minor injuries. The daughter also suffered minor injuries but did not require treatment.

The suspect was described as a black man in his early 20s who is between 5 feet 8 inches and 5 feet 10 inches tall. He was wearing a baggy T-shirt and pants.

    Oh, what a big tough guy. Why didn’t you punch the baby too? Why don’t you pick on somebody your own size tough guy? Come and get me. I got a surprise for you. I’ll change your attitude real fast, punk.

    Let’s see- black man, early 20’s, baggy pants and t-shirt, running away from a crime scene. That narrows it down to about 90% of the East Bay young black male population. White 4 door sedan with tinted windows…now it’s 50%. The other 50% have a glitter bright metallic green 4 door sedan. Just saying.
