Man Posing As SMUD Worker Robs Elk Grove Woman

ELK GROVE (CBS13) – Police in Elk Grove are looking for the man wanted for robbing a woman while posing as a worker for the Sacramento Municipal Utility District.

The incident happened back on April 10 around 9:30 p.m., the Elk Grove Police Department says. A 55-year-old woman was reportedly at her 7600 block of Glenbain Way home when someone rang her doorbell. She answered after the man identified himself as a worker for SMUD doing some sort of follow-up work.

Once inside, however, the man pulled out a gun and pointed it at the woman, demanding money from her. She gave him some money and he took off, police say.

A sketch of the suspect has been released by Elk Grove Police. He is said to be about 30 to 40 years old, about 5’5’’ tall, and had short, sandy blond hair at the time of the incident.

Anyone who recognizes the suspect is asked to call the Elk Grove Police Department at (916) 478-8060.
