Would-Be Purse Snatcher Sought in Brick

A man who tried and failed to grab a woman’s purse in Brick Township Wednesday night is the object of a search by local police.

Brick Township authorites have no identity, but got a description after responding to the Target on Route 70 at 11:26 PM.

Investigators say the suspect approached his victim from behind, pulled her down and tried to yank her purse from her grasp.

A companion of the woman stepped in and subject ran toward the wooded area between the Target and the adjoining PC Richards appliance store, say police.

A search of the forested area by officers proved to be fruitless.

He’s described as about 5’10″ tall and of medium build. Police say he was wearing a dark ski mask, black tee-shirt, black jeans and white sneakers bearing Nike logos.

The probe is ongoing. If you believe you have information that can help police identify and trace the stalker, reach Detective Daniel Waleski, 732-262-1170.
