Police are looking for a teenager who attempted to steal a lawnmower from a local resident.

Just after noon on Thursday, April 23, San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department deputies responded to a reported attempted robbery on the 7600 block of Newhall Avenue.

The alleged victim told the deputies that she had seen a Hispanic male juvenile in her back yard, attempting to steal her lawnmower. She reportedly confronted the teenager, and the pair got into a fistfight, which ended with the would-be thief running from her yard, nursing a bloody nose.

The suspect is described as a Hispanic male teenager, 5'8", 140 lbs., with brown hair, wearing a white muscle shirt, khaki shorts, white socks and black shoes.

Anyone with information regarding this case is asked to call the Hesperia station at 947-1500 or WE TIP at 1-800-782-7463.
