Investigators are looking for a man and his female companion in connection with a robbery in which a woman’s necklace was snatched off her neck in front of her home, Irvine police said.
At about 6:20 p.m. the victim was about to open the front door of her home, off Jamboree Road and Champion Way, when a suspect ripped the necklace off her neck and fled, said Kim Mohr, spokesperson for the Irvine Police Department.
The stolen necklace is worth $2,500.
