The St Louis County Prosecuting Attorney’s office issued warrants for Robbery 1st and Assault 2nd on Deena Smith, 25 years old, of the 7500 block of Melrose.
On May 27th, two ladies, ages 82 and 79, were getting out of their car to shop at the Brentwood Promenade. As the victim walked from behind her car, the suspect took her purse from her walker, and got into a car parked in the next space. As the car backed out and fled, both ladies were knocked down, sustaining injuries.
Thanks to the help of witnesses and some hard work by Brentwood detectives, an arrest was made.
