An elderly woman had her purse snatched off her shoulder Monday morning. The victim told police she was walking in the area of Decatur & Scull Stretts around 9am when a man ran past her and grabbed her purse. She was not injured during the incident.
She described the suspect as a Hispanic male in his 20s, wearing all black with a black hoodie. The victim’s purse was recovered later the same date. It was located under a vehicle a short distance from the scene of the incident.
The investigation is ongoing and anyone with information is asked to contact the Lebanon City Police Department.
