Police are investigating a purse snatching that occurred in front of Cost Less Foods on Hatch Road on Thursday morning, March 19.
A surveillance video of the 9:37 a.m. crime could provide valuable clues, said Ceres Police Department spokesman Lt. Chris Perry.
Police said two Hispanic males drove up behind a woman in a primered, two-door sedan. One who was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and a black bandana over his face, jumped out and tried to grab the purse. The victim put up a struggle at first and then let go. The men then took off in an eastbound direction.
The car reportedly had a white driver's side quarter panel.
Anyone with information is urged to call Ceres detectives at 538-5727.
