Police searching for purse snatching suspect

Frankfort police are looking for information into a violent purse snatching at a popular fast food restaurant.

Police say a woman was robbed around 10:00 PM Tuesday night at 335 Leonardwood Dr.

The woman reports a white man began a casual conversation with a few individuals just outside the Steak 'N Shake door.

Shortly thereafter, the man assaulted a 63-year-old woman, and robbed her of her purse.

The suspect is described as being 5' 6" to 5'8" tall, with a thin build, short brown hair, and wearing a blue shirt some type of white lettering on it.

The man fled the parking lot on foot and ran behind the GNC store where he could have possibly left in a green Camaro.

The victim was transported to the Frankfort Regional Medical Center for treatment of her injuries and was then transferred to UK hospital.

If you have any information, call Frankfort Police at (502) 875-8523.
