Metro Police are searching for two women and a man suspected in the robbery of an elderly woman in late November.

At about 11 p.m. on Nov. 26, the woman was robbed of her purse in a neighborhood near Mount Hood Street and Lake Mead Boulevard, Officer Laura Meltzer said. The suspects did not use a weapon, Meltzer said.

Police were able to track the suspects after one of them allegedly used the victim’s bank card at a store about 20 minutes after the robbery, authorities said.

The vehicle they drove is believed to be a white, two-door pickup truck with a toolbox in the bed near the rear cab window, police said.

The suspects were all described as black and 18 or 19-years-old.

One woman was described as 5 feet 5 inches to 5 feet 7 inches tall and 130 to 140 pounds. She wore a white headband, a dark hooded jacket with white interior lining and two white stripes down each sleeve and the hood, red pants and white shoes with dark laces, police said.

The second woman was described as 5 feet 8 inches to 5 feet 10 inches tall and 145 to 155 pounds. Police said she wore a headband, a dark hooded jacket with a design on the back, a white shirt, blue jeans and light-colored shoes.

The third suspect was described as a black man standing 5 feet 10 inches to 6 feet tall and weighing 160 to 175 pounds. Police said he wore a black cap, gray hooded jacket with front pockets, dark jeans and dark shoes.
