Purses snatched
Ann Arbor Police are investigating
two purse snatchings on Wednesday
which are apparently related. The fir-
st incident occurred at 3:30 p.m. near
the 200 block of North Maple when two
men in their 20's in a car approached
a woman asking directions. Accor-
ding to the report, when the woman
came close to the vehicle, the two men
grabbed the purse and sped away.
The second occurred the same day
at 4:45 p.m. on the 2600 block of
Jackson Ave. The woman was loading
groceries inte her car when the two
men grabbed the purse and again fled
in a car. Police have no suspects at this
time.
