A woman was robbed at gunpoint Tuesday night while she was in her car outside her home, police said.
The incident occurred at 8 p.m. in the 200 block of West Richland Street, near Sycamore Street, as the woman and her husband returned home after doing some Christmas shopping, said Santa Ana police Cmdr. Stephen Colon.
The couple parked in their driveway and the husband went inside the house to drop off some packages while the woman waited in the car, Colon said. That’s when she noticed a man walking on the sidewalk and locked the car doors.
The man walked back, approached the passenger’s window and pointed a gun at the woman while he ordered her to open the door. The woman complied and the man reached in and grabbed her purse, Colon said.

This email just went out from the office of Supervisor Pat Bates, who has been very supportive of our goal of reforming CCW policies in Orange County.
Dear Concerned Citizen:
At Tuesday’s meeting, the Board received an update from County Counsel on their ongoing discussions with the Department of Justice (DOJ) regarding how a CCW permit revocation is recorded onto an individual’s DOJ record. As you will recall, my office received hundreds of emails and phone calls from Orange County residents passionately expressing their objections to the arbitrary revocation of CCW permits based solely on the new Sheriff’s interpretation “good cause.” This raised significant concern that such revocations would be recorded on an individual’s DOJ record without proper explanation as to why. This could leave law enforcement and any other reviewing agency with the wrong impression that the license had been revoked for criminal misconduct or any other wrongdoing.

Authorities said the man walked into a bank in San Juan Capistrano this afternoon and walked away with an undisclosed amount of cash.

LAGUNA NIGUEL – The first two times, authorities say, that he unsuccessfully attempted to rob two South County banks, he handed a demand note to the teller but ran off before getting any cash.
In about a week’s time, authorities said, the same man has attempted to rob three South County banks in Mission Viejo, Aliso Viejo and Laguna Niguel. Twice he ran off without any cash, a sign that he may have been working with another person and may have been tipped off that something was going awry, said Jim Amormino, spokesman for the Orange County Sheriff’s Department.
Authorities are hoping that surveillance video released from the third robbery will help identify the man, who is described as in his late 30s or early 40s, 5 feet 11 inches tall and about 200 pounds.
The same man is also believed to have tried to rob a Bank of America branch in Aliso Viejo, where he also ran out of the branch after handing over a demand note.
