Purse stolen from woman who was parked behind Douglas Avenue bar

A 42-year-old woman told police early Saturday that a man approached her while she was parked behind a bar and grabbed her purse.

The woman was sitting in her vehicle behind a bar in the 3100 block of East Douglas, near Hillside, at about 12:10 a.m. when a man approached her, grabbed her purse and ran off, Sgt. John Hoofer said Saturday.

Hoofer said the incident was a good reminder to always lock your doors immediately after you get into your vehicle.

Police still are investigating.
