Thanks to social media, El Cerrito police have identified this woman, who they say robbed a teenage girl of her phone -- and then took a selfie with it. Now, investigators need the public's help finding 18-year-old Tasja Dowell.

CAN'T RESIST A SELFIE: A woman accused of robbing a teenage girl just couldn't resist taking a selfie with the victim's cell phone, according to El Cerrito police.

Now, the cops are hoping that the photo will help land the woman in jail.

It all began about 12:45 p.m. Nov. 5 when the girl, a student at El Cerrito High, was walking on Central Avenue near Clayton Avenue while talking on her phone. 

A car with four males and a female pulled up alongside her, and the woman came out, confronted the victim and demanded her phone and backpack.

The victim refused, and the woman punched her in head, knocking her to the ground and rendering her unconscious, police said. The woman stole the girl's phone and dragged her briefly by her backpack. The teen was later hospitalized.

The assailant fled in the car, but several days later the victim realized that the woman had posed for several selfies, which had been uploaded to the victim's online "cloud" storage. The student contacted police, and investigators are now asking anyone who recognizes her to conatct them at (510) 215-4400.

ALLEGED POSEUR HELD IN SEXUAL ASSAULT: A Modesto man who allegedly masqueraded as a modeling agent and doctor in order to sexually assault women was set to appear in court today.

Garry Chow, 33, was head of security at Sequoia Hospital in Redwood City. But he pretended to be a modeling agent while reaching out to two women through an ad he posted on Craigslist, according to police. He told them that before they could model, they had to submit to a physical examination at the hospital, authorities said.

Each woman came to the hospital. That's when Chow met them, said he was a doctor and took them to a parking garage, investigators said. "Under the guise of this phony physical examination," he engaged in "improper sexual touching" of the women -- and then demanded $200 for the exam, said San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe.

The women realized they had been victimized and contacted police.

SOMBER ONE-YEAR ANNIVERSARY OF SLAYING: The family of an Oakland man shot and killed at an East Bay park is inviting the public to commemorate the one-year anniversary of the slaying.

David Ruenzel, 60, was robbed shot at the Huckleberry Botanic Regional Preserve in the Oakland hills on Nov. 25, 2014. The teacher and writer had parked at the trailhead near Skyline Boulevard and Elverton Drive and was about three-quarters of a mile down the Upper Huckleberry Path when he was accosted by two assailants and gunned down.

East Bay Regional Park police believe the assailants were already in the park and didn't follow Ruenzel there, said district spokeswoman Carolyn Jones. And although Ruenzel's wallet was stolen, and a third individual tried to use the victim's ATM that evening in downtown Oakland, police say they don't believe robbery was a motive in the attack.

Police have previously released sketches of the two assailants. There is a $25,000 reward for information leading to an arrest in the case. Anyone with information is asked to call park police at (510) 881-1833.

A service will be held at 11 a.m. Nov. 22 at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church at 2808 Lakeshore Ave. in Oakland.

"Thousands of innocent loved ones die annually simply for being in the wrong place at the wrong time," Ruenzel's widow Nancy Aldrich-Ruenzel said in a statement. "While we mourn our loss, we mourn all such senseless losses and injustices everywhere in this country and the world, and we pray for a return to humanity and civility and justice. Our hope is to bring attention to this so we can help other families, and to encourage witnesses to come forward to save future lives."
