Woman suffers fractured arm in Southington purse snatching


SOUTHINGTON — A woman suffered a fractured arm and dislocated shoulder in a purse snatching on Queen Street Wednesday night.

Sgt. Jeffrey Dobratz, police spokesman, said officers responded to Cumberland Farms, 909 Queen Street, about 9 p.m. for a report of a purse snatching. A 63-year-old woman was walking from the store to her car when the suspect grabbed her purse. The woman struggled with the suspect but he was able to get away with the purse.

The suspect is described as about six feet tall with a slender build. He was wearing all black clothing and a black ski mask, Dobratz said. Police believe the suspect may live or frequent the northeast section of town because he appeared to have knowledge of the area when fleeing the scene.

Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Kyle Dobratz at (860) 378-1654.
