Project 3

Students are to use the following Fact Scenario.

Amber, a 5’0″ female, is shopping in the local mall when she is accosted from behind by a man who grabs her purse and runs away. She sees the perpetrator from the side, but is unable to see his entire face. She describes her assailant as a white male, approximately 25 to 35 years old, tall, perhaps close to six feet, somewhat stocky. She recalls him as having dark blond hair and does not recollect facial hair.

Clay, a 6’4″ male, witnesses the incident; he saw the man walk rapidly toward Amber and grab her purse. He had a good view of the assailant the entire time. He describes the assailant as a white male, approximately 30 to 35 years old, with brown hair; and describes him as short—perhaps under 5’10”. Clay does not recall facial hair.

The police have no leads in the case until Cramon is stopped near the mall for a traffic violation the next day. In his back seat are several women’s purses. Because there have been a number of purse snatchings near the mall, the officer requests and receives permission to search the vehicle. One of the purses in the back belongs to Amber. Cramon is arrested for the crime.
