A resident of the Salvation Army's Hope Harbor shelter was knocked to the ground and had $500 cash stolen from her purse Wednesday night, according to Lodi police and the victim.

The woman, who has lived in Lodi for 23 years and at Hope Harbor for the past two months, was walking to the Sacramento Street shelter from the Salvation Army's headquarters on Lockeford Street when a man got out of a white SUV and stole her purse, which contained her savings. She said she carried the cash because she doesn't have a bank account.

The incident took place at 6:40 p.m. at Lockeford and School streets, police said.

The alleged assailant is described as a Hispanic man, 25 to 30 years old. A woman about the same age was driving the SUV, police said.

"We want to warn people," the victim said.

"A lot of people don't have cars right now and have to walk home," her boyfriend said.

Anyone with information about the incident may call Lodi police at 209-333-6727 or Crime Stoppers, 209-369-2746.

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
