Man asks woman for time, then snatches her purse

March 21, 1996

An 81-year-old Glen Burnie woman was the victim of a purse-snatching Tuesday at a Crofton shopping center, county police said.

Ruby Rector told police she was walking to her car at the Crofton Station Shopping Centre in the 1100 block of Route 3 North shortly after 12: 30 p.m. when a man asked the time.

When Ms. Rector looked at her watch, the man grabbed her purse and ran behind the store, police said. Officers searched for the man, but did not find him.
