SPD robbery detectives are working to identify a masked man who stabbed a woman during a failed purse snatching on Aurora last week.
Just before 8:00am on July 3rd, the woman was walking down Aurora, on her way to get breakfast, a police report says.
When the woman neared a pedestrian overpass on 102nd and Aurora, a man wearing a ski mask approached her and tried to rip her purse from her shoulder.
When the woman fought back, the man called her a “bitch” and stabbed her in the left arm with a “large folding knife.”
The man let go of the purse and fled down an alley.
Medics transported the woman to a hospital. The report does not indicate the seriousness of her injuries, or provide any other identifying details about the suspect.
