Some despicable, low life criminal stole a purse this afternoon. He then went into the public bathroom, dumped some of the contents into the toilet and floor. He left the purse in the stall. Probably stole the wallet with cash and cards. If he's not caught, hopefully karma catches up with him.

The victim got her purse back and thankfully keys were left in.

Completely fed up with criminals/thieves who target purses/backpacks to steal. Please be aware of suspicious behavior.

Thanks neighbors!

  • Description of mugger?

  • There was a Facebook post about this and my understanding is that it was not a mugging. The victim left her purse unattended by accident on a bench at Hamlin Park and it was stolen. She then found it with contents dumped in the toilet.
