Decatur Police say a robbery suspect snatched a purse from a table in the 400 block of Church Street.

Police responded to the robbery call at 9:51 p.m. on Oct. 20.

“The complainants reported they were sitting at a table when the suspect ran up and snatched a purse off of the table and ran to a vehicle that simultaneously pulled up nearby on Church Street,” Lt. Jennifer Ross said. “The vehicle sped off north and then turned east onto East Ponce de Leon Avenue. The suspect was described as a black male, 20’s-early 30’s, approximately 5’8, thin build, possibly having a dread hair style, wearing blue jeans, a dark hooded sweatshirt and black cap with a red brim.  The vehicle was a newer model, shiny black, 2-door hatchback with loud exhaust driven by a second black male. The victims were not injured.”
