A Monona man was mugged Sunday afternoon while walking in the parking lot of Westgate Mall. He was approached from behind by a man who was asking for something. The 24-year old said he could not help him, and kept heading for a mall entrance. The robber next placed him in a bear hug, then a choke hold, and took him to the pavement. A woman, who was working in tandem with the mugger, ran her hands through the victim's pockets. Her male friend punched the victim and the criminals fled in a white pickup truck - possibly a GMC - with the victim's diamond earring, wallet, and phone. Witnesses said a gold Honda Accord, driven by a woman, also sped from the parking lot with the truck and that it appeared she was also connected to the robbers

Female, white, blonde hair, 20's, thin build, wearing a white tube top, dark blue knee-length shirt, and flip flops.
