JERKED: Purse Snatched By Smelly Man In Jamaican Hat

An apparently homeless man reached into a car and snatched the driver's purse near the 7-Eleven at Broadway and Waveland on Saturday.

The victim was in the strip mall parking lot when the offender—described as male, black, in his 40's with long braids or dreads, a green and yellow "Jamaican-like" knit cap, dark green jacket, and noticeable body odor—reached into the vehicle and stole the purse from next to her.

The black Coach bag with gold lettering contained the woman's ID, credit cards, and silver iPhone.

Recorded as a purse snatching in case HX256129.
