Surveillance Pictures Released Of Robbery Suspect

Lincoln police are still searching for the man who beat a woman in her office, and stole her purse.

And now they're hoping surveillance video can help the public identify the suspect.

That incident happened yesterday morning, and police believe the suspect they're looking for could be involved in other recent purse snatchings as well.

The surveillance photo released today shows the suspect after one of his purse snatchings.

Lincoln police believe this man is responsible for 3 other instances, where a women's purse was stolen, in the 48th and Pioneers area.

Just 15 minutes after he took one women's purse, he went to the south Wal-Mart where he used the victim's credit card to make a purchase.

With each purse snatching, the burglar has become more violent, which has police worried.

So far no one has been arrested.

He's described as a black male, he's about 5'5' and in his late 20s, and he's been targeting the 48th and Pioneers area.

There is a reward for any substancial information that leads to an arrest.

And police are warning all women, to be extra cautious and aware of their surroundings.

If you have any information that can help authorities, please call crimestoppers at 475-3600.
