PHOENIX - Silent Witness is asking the public for any information regarding a man and woman suspected of attempting to steal a 67-year-old woman's purse in a Phoenix Fry's parking lot.
While loading groceries into her car at Cactus Road and 43rd Avenue on Aug. 7, the victim was approached by the male suspect who stole her purse from the shopping cart.
According to Silent Witness, the victim chased the suspect as he ran to a parked gray 2002 Nissan Sentra and got into the driver's side.
After the male suspect handed the purse to the female suspect in the passenger seat, the victim reached into the car and began to tug at her purse.
Although she received minor injuries to her hands and wrists during the struggle, the victim recovered her purse.
Before the suspects could flee the parking lot, a witness was able to snap some photos of the suspects in their vehicle.
According to Silent Witness, the white male suspect is around 18 to 25 years old. He stands between 5-feet-7-inches and 5-feet-9-inches tall and weighs 150 to 170 pounds.
