Vancouver police are looking for a woman whose purse was stolen Sunday evening in the West End.
She was walking the east sidewalk of Bute Street toward Georgia when a man on a bike swept passed and grabbed her bag.
Police officers happened to witness it and turned on their lights and sirens, which caused the thief to drop the purse and flee.
He was eventually arrested not far away at a local bar.
Police are now looking for the victim. Anyone who knows her is asked to call VPD.
