Alameda police are looking for a youth who, they said, pepper sprayed a woman as she sat at a local coffee shop and stole her laptop computer.

Alameda Police Lt. Bill Scott said the woman was sitting in Peet’s Coffee & Tea at the corner of Park Street and Central Avenue at 9:20 a.m. when a male juvenile entered and tried to take her computer. When the victim tried to prevent the theft, the suspect sprayed her with pepper spray, he said.

Scott said the suspect took the woman’s laptop and fled, speeding off in a waiting car. He said the victim refused medical attention.
