Police are trying to identify a man they say blindfolded and robbed a Tacoma woman in her home last month.
Tacoma-Pierce County Crime Stoppers gave this account:
The woman was sleeping Sept. 5 in her home in the 400 block of North Borough Road when she woke up about 8:45 p.m. to find the man standing by her bed. He blindfolded the woman and stole her cellphone, wallet and television.
Never miss a local story.
Half an hour after the robbery, the man tried to use the woman’s credit cards to get cash at Walgreens, TAPCO Credit Union and a 7-Eleven on Sixth Avenue.
At that time the man was wearing a Pittsburgh Steelers hooded sweatshirt, and was traveling in a white minivan driven by someone else.
The robber is described as in his 30s or 40s, about 6 feet tall and 215 pounds, and smelling like cigarettes.
Anyone with information is asked to call 1-800-222-TIPS (8477). Tips are anonymous and can lead to a reward.
