On October 22, 2016 a woman was accosted at the Summerdale Plaza in front of the Shur Fine grocery store while she was loading groceries into her vehicle. A white male, in his early 20's, attempted to steal her purse from her shoulder. The suspect male displayed a small knife to the victim and demanded her purse. The suspect was not successful in getting the purse from the victim and he fled in a smaller metallic blue compact vehicle (possibly a Chevrolet). The suspect was wearing a cream colored hooded sweatshirt, with the hood up over his head, therefore the police are unsure of his hair color.
Police need your help in identifying the suspect. If you have any information, please call East Pennsboro Police Department at 717-732-3633 ext. 1604.
