Seattle police hunt for brazen purse-snatcher
Do you recognize this guy? Seattle police are looking for him in connection with a purse-snatching last week
At about 6 p.m. last Friday, two men approached a woman outside a department store at Fifth Avenue and Pine Street, shoved her to the sidewalk, stole her purse and ran off.
The robbery was caught on store surveillance cameras.
Police have identified one of the suspects and he’s already in jail for an unrelated case. But they’re trying to identify the individual pictured at right.
If you recognize him, call SPD’s Robbery Unit at 206-684-5535.
