BRAWLEY — Imperial County Sheriff's Office deputies are looking for a man who allegedly robbed another man of his gold necklace while the victim was visiting friends.

Around 8:15 p.m. Sunday, Miguel Mariscal, 22, of Brawley was at a friend's home at 532 W. Cady Road west of here and sitting on a weight bench when an unidentified man grabbed his gold chain from him, Deputy Investigator J.B. Higgins said.

Higgins did not know if Mariscal was inside or outside the residence at the time of the robbery.

Mariscal followed the suspect as he ran west from the scene. When Mariscal caught the suspect and demanded his necklace, the suspect struck him with a closed fist and ran away again, Higgins said.

The suspect is described as 5 feet 8 inches tall weighing about 230 pounds. He was described as a Hispanic male in his late 20s with black hair and brown eyes.
