I was at a southside restaurant eating supper with a friend three weeks ago when all of a sudden a man shoved me.

He grabbed my purse, which was under my jacket. I yelled out; the waitress chased him. My friend also chased him.

This incident was reported to the police and the description of the culprit was given with the make of vehicle driven. They have not been charged with this incident by the police department.

There have been other purse snatches in the city and ATM machines are watched as people get money from them in the malls. Seniors are targeted in stores and on the streets in Thunder Bay.

The crooks know when people cash their monthly cheques at various bank branches. Loitering is done at the malls and liquor stores. They do not want to work, so they do devious things to support their drug addictions.
