Local Purse Snatchers

The local RCMP is looking for two male purse snatchers, who struck Tuesday evening, approaching a woman from behind, as she was walking on 96th street north, near 106th avenue.

Although the woman reportedly had her arm grabbed, there’s no indication in the police release, she was injured.


One suspect is described, as caucasian, with a medium build, short brown hair and brown eyes and about 5 feet 10 inches tall. The other is said to be native, and about 6 feet tall, with medium length brown hair.
