FAYETTEVILLE, AR -- Fayetteville Police are investigating a purse snatching. It happened on January 21 near U.S. Pizza on Dickson Street. A young woman says a man grabbed her bag and took off around 7:15 p.m. According to Fayetteville Police Sergeant Craig Stout, the woman wasn't hurt and the man didn't have a weapon, but Stout says this still isn't par for the course in our area.

"This is kind of a rarity," Stout says. "We don't really have this type or crime too often in Fayetteville."

The man is described as white and about 5-foot, 10-inches tall with a heavy build. According to the woman, he was about 35 to 40 years old. Officers say surveillance video taken from a nearby business shows a man matching that description, and they'd like to talk to him. If you recognize the man in this photo, call Fayetteville Police.
