Bibb deputies are looking for a masked man who snatched a purse from a woman Thursday morning at Summer Park Apartments at 4658 Mercer University Drive.

Just before 9:30 a.m. Thursday, a black man, about 6 feet tall and weighing about 140 pounds, asked a woman for the time as she walked to her car in the apartment parking lot, according to a news release from the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office.

He grabbed her purse, they fought, but the man was able to grab the pocketbook and run off.

He was wearing a red ski mask under a black hooded sweatshirt and black Jordan tennis shoes with red trim.
