Chattanooga police are asking for the public’s help in finding a bandit who knocked over a pregnant woman while robbing her at a laundromat, according to a statement from Sgt. Jerri Weary.
The woman, who is five months pregnant, told police she was doing laundry Wednesday when a man approached her from behind and snatched her purse, according to the release.
She received a back injury when she was knocked down inside Maytag Coin Laundry at 1501 Dodds Ave. and taken to a local hospital, Weary said
The robber was able to get away with $500, her purse, a cell phone and some documents, police said.
