The Bloomington police say a man who robbed two women in their city, may be connected to a similar attack Monday evening in the Southdale Mall parking lot, reports the Star Tribune.
One woman was robbed shortly after 8 p.m. Monday when she was followed home from Lund's at 98th St. and Normandale Blvd. She said she was approached in her driveway by an armed man, who demanded her purse and fled, reports ABC.
Thursday morning around 5:45 a.m. a second woman said she was followed into the Caribou Coffee parking lot at 3835 W. Old Shakopee Road. Again, a man approached her, took her purse, and ran, reports the Star Tribune.
The suspect and vehicle descriptions were similar in both incidents. The suspect is described as a black male around 40 years old, 6 feet tall, and about 200 pounds. He was said to be driving a dark mid-sized sedan, reports the Star Tribune.
The similar descriptions lead the police to believe that the suspect is also responsible for the Edina robbery on Tuesday night at Southdale Mall. The armed suspect approached and robbed her, reports ABC.
Edina is offering as much as $5,000 for information about these incidents, reports the Star Tribune.
