Police are looking for a man who snatched up a woman's purse as she was loading groceries in her car outside of a Phoenix store.

Silent Witness said on Aug. 7 the suspect grabbed the woman's purse from her shopping cart and ran to a parked car in the Fry's parking lot at 4200 W. Cactus Rd.

The suspect handed the purse to a woman in the passenger seat and the victim followed, managing to get her bag back.
