AZUSA (CBS) — Police say a woman in Azusa was riding her bicycle into cars on purpose so she could pressure drivers into giving her money.

One of the motorists called police after the 20-year-old woman was found crawling out from underneath their car near East Arrow Highway and South Azusa Avenue at about 6:30 p.m. Wednesday. The woman fled and officers found her nearby. Paramedics treated her for some scratches and officers issued her a citation for alleged hit-and-run.

Azusa police said the suspect, Celina Pangburn, of Azusa, also tried to pull the same stunt a few hours earlier on a driver a few blocks east of Hollenbeck Avenue.

The case will reportedly be reviewed by the L.A. County District Attorney’s office to see if further action will be taken.
