FAMILY AFFAIR: Purses Stolen From Mom And Daughter

A mom and her daughter had their purses stolen by two thieves in a dual snatch ‘n’ grab at Roscoe and Sheffield this afternoon. The younger woman’s father attempted to catch the criminals, but was unable to do so.

The offenders, described only as one black male and one black female, ran westbound on Roscoe, then south on Kenmore where they hopped into a older model white 4-door vehicle, possibly a Mazda. They were last seen driving westbound on Belmont at 3:30PM.

The case is recorded as a theft of more than $500 in Chicago Police Department case #HW475296.
