Belize City Police on the hunt for young purse snatcher

Posted: Sunday, December 3, 2023. 4:50 pm CST.

By Horace Palacio: In a brazen daylight robbery that has shaken the local community, Belize City Police are on the hunt for a teenage suspect involved in a purse snatching incident on Barrack Road. The unsettling event, which unfolded this morning, was captured in clear detail by a surveillance camera, providing crucial evidence for authorities.

The footage reveals a chilling scene: an unsuspecting female pedestrian is walking along Barrack Road when suddenly, a figure, identified as a young male, is seen sprinting up behind her. In a calculated move, he slows his pace, stealthily approaching the woman from behind. Without warning, he grabs her purse with force. The woman, caught off guard, screams and falls to the ground, desperately clinging to her belongings. However, her efforts are in vain as the assailant wrenches the purse away and flees the scene at a breakneck speed.

The victim, who has not been identified, was left shaken but physically unharmed. The incident has raised concerns among residents about the safety of pedestrian-friendly areas in Belize City.

Police, acting swiftly on the evidence, have identified a suspect in the case, who is reportedly a minor. While details about the suspect have been withheld due to age, authorities are actively seeking the individual in connection with the crime.
