Police are searching for a man who snagged a 70-year-old womans purse as she walked to her car in a church parking lot in Nashville, Tenn., Thursday, leaving her injured.
The video shows the woman walk up to a silver Dodge 1500 pickup truck that pulled up next to her. The suspect can be seen talking to the woman, bringing her closer to his window. When she was within reach, the suspect grabbed her purse and began driving away as she held onto it, which forced her onto the pavement, according to WCVB 5.
The Nashville Metropolitan Police Department posted the video to YouTube Thursday, asking for tips to find the suspect, Gilbert D. Ostring Jr., 48, who was released from prison in June 2017.
The woman broke bones in her right hand and suffered facial injuries, according to police.
Ostring Jr. remains on the run and is believed to still be driving the silver Dodge pickup truck.
