Two wanted in connection with Manteca robbery
MANTECA — Two men are wanted in connection with a robbery after attacking a woman as she tried getting into her car Wednesday night, the Manteca Police Department reported.
The men reportedly watched as the victim, who was not identified, left Walmart at 1205 S. Main St. about 11:05 p.m. and placed her purchases into her vehicle. Police said the 19-year-old woman then returned the shopping cart and was back at her car when the men walked up to her.

The robbers left with her wallet.
Officers responded and saw the men walking near the scene of the attack, behind a store at 1055 S. Main St., but the men jumped a wall into someone’s backyard, according to police. Police searched for the men yard-to-yard but were unable to find them.
