Quincy police are searching for two suspects who allegedly robbed a woman on Hancock Street Thursday evening.
Responding officers arrived at the scene at 11:30 p.m. Thursday and found a visibly shaken victim, police said.
The victim said she had gotten off at the North Quincy MBTA stop and was walking home on Hancock Street when a man and a woman approached her.
The suspects are described as both being approximately 5’6”, white, and in their mid-to-late 20s. The woman weighed approximately 160 pounds and had brown hair piled on her head. The male was of very thin build and had black hair.
The female began asking the victim for directions to a nearby restaurant, police said, and the victim pointed the suspects in the right direction before crossing the street to walk home.
The female yelled out to the victim, who turned around and found the female suspect was right behind her. Police said the female grabbed the victim by the shoulder and said, “Honey, you’re being robbed.”
The female then grabbed the victim’s backpack and purse and took off, running through the parking lot of Panera.
The victim then ran up Hancock Street to her apartment and called police.
According to the police, the backpack contained clothes, while the purse contained approximately $100, a driver’s license, a Kindle, credit cards, and her phone.
Quincy police were unable to locate the suspects. Officers are continuing to investigate the crime.
