A Montgomery rider at Skillman Park found her front passenger window smashed and her Coach bag and wallet missing from her vehicle in the park’s parking lot on Tuesday, February 8 at 5:12 p.m.

The victim told Montgomery Township police that as she finished her ride, she observed a black two-door sedan, possibly a BMW 3-Series, parked next to her vehicle in the parking lot. The driver of the vehicle, a dark-haired Asian man in his 20s wearing wire-rimmed sunglasses, then drove right past her, the victim told police.
