The Williams Lake RCMP are looking for witnesses after a female’s purse was stolen Friday in Kiwanis Park.
On July 26, at about 10 a.m. the female was sitting at a picnic bench in the park between the tennis courts and the children’s play area.
A Caucasian male with short blond hair, wearing a white hat and purple tank top, approached her and asked for a cigarette.
When she put her purse down to give him a cigarette, he grabbed the purse and ran off in the direction of Boitanio Park.
Anyone who may have seen the incident is asked to please contact the Williams Lake RCMP at 250-392-6211 or call CRIMESTOPPERS at 1-800-222-8477 to make an anonymous tip.
