Clarkstown police are looking for a man who mugged a woman in the parking lot of a Nanuet supermarket on Saturday morning.
A 47-year-old woman had her purse stolen at about 10:25 a.m. as she was at the Stop and Shop. She was not injured in the incident.
Police said that as the victim left the Stop & Shop off Middletown Road and walked to her car, her attacker was parked next to her car. The attacker, who was standing next to his car, grabbed the victim's purse from her shoulder, got into his car and then drove off.
