Ithaca Police station stock

Ithaca police responded to a report of a purse snatching in the Kohl's parking lot, 410 Elmira Rd., on Oct. 15 around noon. 

The police report stated that the subject of the robbery was exiting a vehicle in the Kohl's parking lot when two men hopped out of an older, full-size, grey/silver model Chevrolet and snatched the subject's purse.

The two suspects are described as white men, approx. 6 ft. tall and scruffy-looking. One wore a bright, multi-colored head covering, similar to a bandana, and blue jeans. The report did not list a description of the second robber.

The suspects are said to have fled the scene after quickly returning to their vehicle, driven by a third person: a white woman with brown hair and brown eyes. She is said to have looked between 20 and 30 years old.
