Windsor Police are on the hunt for young man after a purse snatching this afternoon.

Police say that a 64-year-old woman was walking through the parking lot of the CAW Legal Services Centre on Central Avenue just before 12:30 this afternoon, when a male riding a bicycle grabbed her purse off of her shoulder. The suspect then rode away towards the Metro Store just east of where the robbery occurred.

The suspect is described as a light-skinned black male, around 12 to 14 years of age. He had curly hair and wore a brown and beige plaid jacket. He was on a bicycle.

Police were interviewing a number of witnesses and looking at surveillance video in the area.  The woman was shaken but was not injured.
