Around 3:30 p.m. a woman was entering her Mix Avenue, Hamden apartment through its foyer when a man followed her inside. The victim said the man pointed what appeared to be a gun at her and forced her into a nearby stairwell, where he inappropriately touched her and stole her pocketbook.
The suspect, who ran off, is described as a black man in his 30s, about 5-foot-10 with a muscular build. He was wearing a white t-shirt, shorts and weightlifting gloves.
A K-9 tried to track the suspect but was unsuccessful.
