(Salt Lake City-AP) -- Salt Lake City police are looking for a bicyclist who snatched two purses within five minutes from women in the downtown area.
The first incident happened at 8:18 p.m. Wednesday. A man on a yellow mountain bike took the purse of a woman in the parking lot of the Albertsons on Second South.
Five minutes later a man on a bicycle took a purse that a worker at Fourth South sandwich shop placed on a counter while helping a customer.
Police say that in both incidents, the purse-snatcher was described as six-foot-four with dirty blond hair. He was last seen wearing a sage-green ball cap, white T-shirt and tan shorts.
