By Star-Advertiser staff

POSTED:



Hawaii County police are investigating a purse snatching during which an 86-year-old woman was slightly injured in downtown Hilo on Tuesday. 

Police said the Hilo woman had been walking along Haili Street near a movie theater about 5:30 p.m. Tuesday when an unknown male pushed her from behind — causing her to fall — and stole her purse. The victim sustained minor injuries but declined treatment. 

The suspect is described as about 5-feet tall, about130 pounds with a medium build and short black hair. He was wearing a tan shirt with orange rectangular designs, and possibly blue jeans. 

Police ask that anyone with information on the case contact either Detective Grant Todd at 961-2385 or at gtodd@co.hawaii.hi.us or Detective Joel Field at 961-2381 or jfield@co.hawaii.hi.us.
