DENVER -- A woman was robbed by a man driving a vehicle with a Comcast sticker on it, after she was sprayed in the face with black paint. It all started with a fender bender.

The victim’s son says she is shaken, but OK.

"She’s a strong woman,” he said.

He said she was on her way home from the grocery store Monday evening around 6:15pm, when she was rear-ended. “Basically the guy bumped her into the car and she pulled in the driveway.”

She got out to check her vehicle, like most people would do.

“Make sure my car is ok, see what the damage is. Make sure the other person is ok,” said Jenny Sacks.

But, that’s when the driver sprayed the woman in the face with black paint and stole her purse.  Sacks said, “It’s a little surprising and it’s sad to hear what happened.”

The man is described as Caucasian, about 5’9” tall and between 165-175 pounds. He has dark hair and was wearing brown-rimmed glasses and a light blue jacket with blue jeans.  The victim’s son said, “It was a white 4-door sedan, it had a Comcast sticker on it.

Cyndi Parson with Comcast says Comcast’s fleet vehicles are typically vans and trucks and said it’s highly unlikely it’s one of theirs.

Sacks said,  “That makes me wonder more, is that an actual Comcast employee or is that somebody who is just putting that on their car, thinking, or did they steal that car as well?”

Nancy Bert and her husband have lived in the area for more than 50 years. She said, “It’s been a long time.” But she’s never heard of anything like this happening before. She said it’s a safe neighborhood.

“I’ve never had a problem,” she said.

Nonetheless, she always stays on guard. “I always think twice about things like that. I’ve been lucky.”
