A woman was pushed and had her purse snatched by another woman who made off in a waiting getaway car Monday evening, police say.
The 46-year-old victim was loading her car on the 800-block of Victoria Avenue at about 7:30 p.m. when she was approached by a stranger who asked her a question. She then pushed the victim and then grabbed her purse from the shopping cart before fleeing.
Police say the getaway car was a black, four-door sedan, which was being driven by someone else.
The victim wasn’t able to get the licence plate number from the car, or a description of the driver. The purse-snatcher is described as a Caucasian woman with a thin face, about 60 years old, five-foot-one with blonde hair.
