Robbery reported at Cody car wash

A woman was reportedly attacked and robbed of money and prescription pills during a Wednesday morning incident at a Cody car wash.

Cody police are investigating the crime, which reportedly occurred around 3 a.m. Wednesday. It was reported to authorities Thursday morning.

The woman told police she was attacked from behind as she vacuumed her car at Yankee Carwash on Big Horn Avenue.

According to a Monday news release from Cody police, the woman said a white male — wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and black pants — grabbed her and demanded the money in her purse. After giving him the cash, she said the male hit her multiple times and ripped away her purse.

“During the struggle, a bottle of prescription medication fell from the victim’s purse and spilled onto the ground,” Cody police spokesman John Harris said of the woman’s account. “The male grabbed some of the pills off of the ground then fled in an unknown direction.”

The woman described the male as approximately 5’10” tall and 165 pounds.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to contact Cody Police Officer Eric Wright at 307-527-8700 or to make an anonymous online report at http://tinyurl.com/CodyPDtips.
