Davis man suspected of robbing tow driver
On May 5 at about 7 p.m., Milpitas police responded to a robbery on the 200 block of Serra Way.
Police said suspect Sukhjinder Singh, 21, of Davis, paid a commercial tow truck driver $200 to tow his car from Campbell to Davis. But Singh allegedly did not trust the tow truck driver's work and eventually told her to pull over in front of the Big Lots store in Milpitas.
Police said the tow truck driver, a 43-year-old San Jose woman, allegedly told Singh she would take $60 for towing the car as far as Milpitas. Police said Singh did not want to pay, and struck the woman in the face before taking $127 cash from her fanny pack. Arriving officers arrested Singh on charges of robbery. The Santa Clara County District Attorney's Office later reduced the charges against the suspect to grand theft, police said.
