FAIRFIELD — Someone punched a 39-year-old Fairfield woman several times Monday afternoon outside a retailer and stole a portable computer from her, police said.

The woman, who was bleeding from the mouth and nose, was taken to NorthBay Medical Center, police said.

The suspect is believed to be a black male juvenile. No weapons were used in the crime reported at 3:40 p.m. on the 2100 block of Cadenasso Drive, police said.

    Yes, but were there any abandoned shopping carts in the area? You know that's what leads to crime.

    Wow I really hope we don't have to expect more of this now. What happens to the good citizen witnessing this and sort of puts aside "reasonable force" in apprehending the "juvenile?" People are tired of the violence, things are going to get rough for the bad guys.

    Could you please be a little more vague about the details of the story.

    I agree. There's more unsaid here than said that people want to know.

    A perfect segue into tonight's community meeting on crime. Unbelievable! No--check that. In Fairfield it's quite believable.

    Why we should ALL be allowed to arm ourselves, not just the police. When was the last time someone tried stealing something from a uniformed cop

    Not my preferred solution, but I could live with it IF we had universal background checks and registration and some reasonable regulation of the types of guns the average sane, law-abiding adult citizen can carry. One problem is, if the lowlife in this story thought the victim might have been armed, would he have been deterred, or would he have shot her instead of hitting her? And then, in the ensuing gunfight with bystanders, how much collateral damage would be done?

    Again, rlw895: Would the criminal submit to a "background check" and "register" his shooter? Of course not! We now have background checks before one can buy a roscoe and "registration" will do nothing, repeat NOTHING to prevent a crime but will facilitate government confiscation of weapons owned by law abiding citizens. Think it can't happen? Think again, it has, it can, and it will. And "regulation of the types of guns" is another canard. Existing laws already impose stringent limits on what one can or cannot buy; no more laws are needed. As for your silly hypothetical shootout: just plain scare mongering. Repeat: The Second Amendment means what it says, pure and simple.

    I certainly hope it gets real bad for the bad guys.. We shall see. I live in Suisun we need a community meeting as well. Suisun and Fair field do close what happens in one city affects the other. I think both police departments need help and need to call in whoever to help now!!

    So this happened near the Home Depot/Target? Well this makes me even more excited for the Walmart coming to Suisun next year.

    Count your blessings. Your police will have many calls for service at that location. Your 911 call? Not that important when somebody is shoplifting a lipstick at Walmart.
