New Bedford Police are investigating a weekend purse snatching.

Det. Capt. Steve Vicente tells WBSM News, the incident happened Sunday afternoon near the intersection of Nauset and Mt. Pleasant.

A 76 year old woman was walking nearby when a man came up behind her and grabbed her purse and ran off. Two passersby gave chase, but lost the suspect, who apparently discarded the purse but kept the wallet. The victim was unhurt.

The man was described as a light-skinned male with tattoos. Police are currently checking with businesses in the area to see if they have any video of the robbery. Anyone with information should call Detective Tyrone Jones at 508 991-6300, ext 134.
