Police in San Jose are asking more victims to come forward in a long string of purse snatchings targeting older Asian women during the holidays, reports the Mercury News.
Investigators say the suspect followed at least 14 women from shopping centers to their homes where he sometimes threw the women to the ground and on at least a few occasions threatened them with a gun.
Terrell Anthony Norman was arrested December 22, but police believe there are more victims who can provide additional information for their case.
Norman is described as having worn a hooded sweatshirt during the robberies and driving a silver Jeep Patriot.
Anyone with any information on possible victims should contact San Jose police Detective Michael Drago at 408-277-4166. Those who wish to remain anonymous can call 408-947-STOP (7867).
