Purse Snatching

An elderly woman is recovering, with four broken ribs, after she was knocked to the ground by a man who stole her purse. This happened 11 a-m on Wednesday in the 1000 block of East Lake. The suspect was last seen running toward Fleishel. He's described as a white male in his early twenties. About 5 feet-five to 5 feet-seven with a thin build. He has reddish-blond to reddish-brown hair, wearing a hooded running jacket.

Call crime stoppers with any information. Police believe another purse stolen from a doctor's office in the same area could also involve this suspect.
