Police search for purse snatching suspects from December attack

Houston police are asking for the public's help identifying suspects they say snatched a purse from an elderly woman and then dragged her with their car in the parking lot of a Houston grocery store.

Police say it happened around noon on December 30 after the woman had finished shopping at the H Mart Grocery Store in the 1300 block of Blalock. The woman told police she had her back turned to her shopping cart when she was approached from behind by a white Nissan Sentra. Police say a male reached from the passenger window of the Sentra and grabbed the woman's purse from her basket.

The woman held on to her purse and was thrown to the ground and dragged a short distance as the vehicle drove away, police say. The woman was transported to the hospital with a head injury.

The vehicle is described as a white Nissan Sentra with the first three letters of the license plate possibly being "JXT".

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
