Suspect sought in downtown purse snatching

By 67AM KPUA News

Police are seeking a suspect in a purse snatching that occurred Wednesday afternoon in downtown Hilo as two Kea`au women were walking along Haili Street. A 64-year old woman said she and a 59-year old woman were approached from behind shortly before 1:00 p.m. by a local male who removed her purse before fleeing into an alleyway below the Palace Theatre.

Neither woman was injured in the incident.

The suspect was believed to be in his 20s, and was last seen wearing a white tank-top undershirt, brown shorts and a pair of slippers. If you have any information on the case or witnessed the robbery call Detective Grant Todd at 961-2385, or the police non-emergency at 935-3311.
