Salt Lake City police say they got an assist from the weather in hunting down a suspect who roughed up an elderly woman while taking her purse.
The 85-year-old woman said she had completed a transaction inside the Wells Fargo Bank branch at 778 S. Main about 2:45 p.m. Monday. She then walked outside and the suspect, a middle-aged white male, ripped her purse out of her arms. The woman fell to the ground during the struggle.
However, witnesses were able to give police a license plate number for a gold Chevrolet Lumina the suspect drove away in.
