On Sunday - January 29th, at approximately 12:30 pm, a 68 year old female exited Giant Eagle - 1825 Snow Road. She walked to her vehicle pushing a shopping cart, which contained groceries and her purse. She parked the cart to the rear of her vehicle and proceeded to place her groceries into the trunk. While the female was distracted, a tan SUV type vehicle, believed to be a Chevy Blazer pulled up. The driver of the SUV reached out the window and grabbed the victim's purse and proceeded to pull away. Realizing what was happening, the victim grabbed for her purse and held on while being pulled a short distance as the male drove off. She let go and fell to the pavement landing on her knees and rolling onto her side. The victim described the offender as a thin white male in his late 40's with no facial hair, wearing a dark knit hat. Clink on the links below for video footage.
