SONOMA COUNTY, California -- As reported by the San Mateo County Times: "A man suspected of robbing a 74-year-old woman of her casino winnings in Sonoma County was taken into custody in Daly City Wednesday after Santa Rosa police obtained a warrant for his arrest, police said.

"The woman won several thousand dollars at a slot machine at the River Rock Casino in Geyserville on March 31, Sgt. Lisa Banayat said.

"A man approached her several times in the casino and attempted to engage her in conversation, but the woman became uncomfortable and was escorted by casino security to her car, Banayat said.

"As she searched in her purse for her apartment keys, she was knocked to the ground by someone who took her purse and ran, Banayat said.

"...Police viewed surveillance video from the casino and identified Lisandro Denglay Martinez, 32, of Daly City as the suspect, Banayat said..."
