Within less than half an hour, the suspect approached another elderly woman in the same parking lot and tore her purse off her shoulder before running away.

On April 3, police identified an additional female suspect linked to the initial suspect. Police say a third robbery was reported on Jan. 25 that was linked to both individuals.

He was seen wearing black jeans, a black jacket with a red interior, a red hat with black designs and carrying a reusable shopping bag.

The female suspect is described as a white woman, about 20-years-old with an average build and a noticeable tattoo on the top of her right hand. She was last seen wearing a black Nike hooded sweatshirt, a black winter jacket and light pants.
