Vancouver police say they may have caught the Chinatown purse snatcher.
But not before a sixth woman was robbed Tuesday afternoon.
Officers, both in uniform and undercover, have been hunting for the suspect after four women, all Asian and between the ages of about 60 and 90, were robbed recently over four days.
A fifth was targeted on Monday, and another Tuesday.
Police chased Tuesday’s suspect along East Pender before arresting him.
The 28-year-old from Surrey faces charges and has not been named.
