A woman lost $2,000 in Palo Alto after she threw her purse at a passing car filled with teenagers who allegedly threw a milkshake in her face.
The woman was walking across University Avenue near Rudy’s Pub Sunday when a white Range Rover full of teenagers drove by and allegedly threw a milkshake in her face.
Authorities said the woman tried to get revenge by throwing her alligator skin purse at the passing vehicle.
A window was open on the Range Rover and the purse landed in the car. The purse had several of the woman’s personal items and $2,000 in cash.
Police are looking for the stylish purse and the teenagers, who are facing charges ranging from battery to possession of stolen property or misappropriation of property.
