Kearney police have released a photo of a man they say snatched a woman's purse in a department store parking lot and took off.
It happened around 2:45 p.m. Friday at Target on Second Avenue. A man driving a pickup truck drove by the victim in the parking lot and grabbed her purse, spinning her around and throwing her to the ground.
The victim received minor injuries and was taken to Good Samaritan Hospital.
Images of the suspect and his vehicle -- a late 80's red Ford pickup with chrome running boards, a chrome handle on the driver's side door and a black bed-liner -- were caught on the store's surveillance video.
The tailgate of the pickup has "FORD" written in white across it.
Anyone with any information on the incident or the suspect is urged to call the Kearney Police Department at (308) 237-2104 or the Buffalo County Crime Stoppers at (308) 237-3424.
