A 65-year-old woman said a pedestrian she met on Covington Highway reached into her purse and grabbed cash and a Marta pass.
The woman had shopped at Rite Aid about 7 p.m. July 18 and crossed the road to walk to the Kensington Marta Station.
A man walked up and asked for money. When she said no, the man suddenly thrust his hand into her purse and grabbed her purse change and a Marta Breeze Card.
He walked away, removed the money from the purse and and tossed the purse aside. The woman valued the loss at $1.95.
