A woman told police on Monday that a man on his bicycle snatched and rode away with her purse as she was walking near the Jane E. Lawton Community Center in the Town of Chevy Chase.
The woman told Montgomery County Police that the man, a black male in his 30s with a purple t-shirt, black jeans and a hat, was on a red bike when he ripped the purse from her and went in an unknown direction of travel around 2 p.m. Monday. She reported the purse contained credit cards and an iPad mini.
Montgomery County Police have not responded to a request for more information on the incident.
Town of Chevy Chase manager Todd Hoffman, who works out of the Town’s offices connected to the recreation center (4301 Willow Lane), said an officer did arrive on Monday to investigate the theft case.
