Police looking for man involved in purse theft in Naples

NAPLES, Maine (NEW CENTER) -- The Cumberland County Sheriff's Office is looking for the individual responsible for robbing a woman of her purse while grocery shopping at the Umbrella Factory in Naples.

A 41-year-old Harrison woman had just purchased groceries and was about to load grocery bags into her car when a man walked by her grocery carriage and grabbed her purse. The victim grabbed onto the man's arm to retain her purse but the suspect freed himself by pulling off his sweatshirt. The suspect then ran away in the direction of Bray's Brew Pub with the woman's purse. The purse contained typical identification cards and credit cards.

The victim sustained minor injuries during the struggle. During the struggle, the suspect's ball cap fell off. Both the sweatshirt and ball cap were recovered by police.

Later in the day, the victim's bank card was used to make a purchase at the Rite Aid on Portland Road in Bridgton.

The suspect is described as a Caucasian male, between 5' 9 inches and 6 feet tall, has a thin build and is approximately 30 years old. The suspect may have fled in a full sized, red Chevy or GMC regular cab pick-up. The truck had a wooden ladder rack fixed to the bed.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the CCSO Detective Division at 774-1444 ext. 2108.
