News Media: Memphis Man Steals 75-Year-Old Woman’s Purse And Knocks Her To The Ground
Memphis police have released video of a man wanted in connection with purse-snatching outside a Midtown Kroger store. It’s understood he ran up behind a 75-year-old woman Friday as she was walking into the store at the corner of Poplar Avenue and North Cleveland Street, stole her purse and knocked her to the ground. Shopper Nicole Carter said:
“It’s the days we’re living in. It’s pretty sad.”
“I’m always self-conscious when I come to the store about what I have on me. I don’t even hardly carry a purse no more because it’s just too dangerous.”
Despite the store having at least half a dozen cameras facing the parking lot, they managed to capture images of the suspect from behind.
According to WREG, a customer who didn’t want to share her name said;
“Very scary. It make you don’t wanna come around here.”
“They probably need more cameras. You know, something else to show more.”
The police say the suspect they’re looking for in Friday’s robbery is about 50 years old and light complexion. He was wearing a gray baseball hat, white T-shirt and jeans.
He was last seen heading northbound along Cleveland and then westbound on Larkin.
