MIAMI BEACH (CBSMiami) —  Miami Beach Police are searching for the culprit who violently robbed a woman in her own driveway.

Police say the woman was in the driveway of her home on North Bay Road Thursday around 7:30 a.m.

That’s when a hooded man came over the wooden gate of her home.

Armed with a gun, he walked up to her as she was putting her child in the car for school.

Officers say the man grabbed her from behind, placed his hand over her mouth and held a black semi-automatic pistol to her abdomen while demanding her to hand over her rings.

He later struck her in the face, leaving severe cuts.

The bandit got away with a pricey piece – a $100,000 ring – but not before cameras caught an image of the masked man.

Police said when they got to the scene, the woman was in her kitchen, covered in blood.

The brutality has neighbors rattled.

“It’s not usual that this happens. We thought it’s very safe here but that makes you really think,” said Zarka who lives in the neighborhood.

Miami Beach resident Dasha Gelbtuch who lived through a break-in herself said she was not surprised.

“It’s unfortunate it happened. It could have been her or the person next to her. No rhyme or reason,” she said.

Police are asking anyone with information in the case to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at (305) 471-TIPS.
