Purse Thefts

Saskatoon Police are investigating two purse thefts that occurred in store parking lots Sunday, November 30, 2008.

The first occurred at approximately 5:30 p.m. in the parking lot of 300 Confederation Drive. A woman was loading shopping bags into her vehicle when two males driving an SUV stopped. They asked her for the time and then stole her purse from the shopping cart, where her child was also seated.

A few minutes later another incident was reported across the street in the parking lot of a store at 400 Confederation Drive. Two males approached a woman, asked her for the time, grabbed her purse and pushed her to the ground. A vehicle description was given to police and it was found a short time later, abandoned nearby.

Police are still looking for the two male suspects involved.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Saskatoon Police Service at 975-8300 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
