A 67-year-old woman reported that a man snatched her purse Tuesday night in the Northridge Plaza parking lot on Hilton Head Island.
When the woman opened her car door, a man pushed against it, knocked her off balance, yanked her purse from her shoulder and ran away, according to the Beaufort County Sheriff's Office.
A K-9 unit located the purse and most of its contents nearby, with only a small amount of cash missing, a news release said.
The suspect was not found. He is described as black, in his mid-20s, about 5-feet-10, 160 pounds and wearing a black hooded sweatshirt.
Anyone with information can call Cpl. D. Seifert at 843-255-3414 or Crimestoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC (274-6372).
