Police are asking assistance in identifying a man who stole a $2,495 purse from the Natick Mall this past Saturday.
The man, who was caught on video tape, cut the sensor wire and ran off with the purse.
He was picked up outside by a 2003 black Mercedes-Benz registered to a Newton resident. The vehicle had been queried by more than a dozen law enforcement agencies in the last few months, according to Natick Police.
The suspect has a noticeable anatomical issue with his left eye, described by witnesses as "milky," police said.
Anyone who can assist with the identification is asked to contact the Natick Police Department Detective Division at 508-647-9520. Citizens may report anonymously using the online reporting system.
