BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — A man in a ski mask attempted to snatch a purse from a 76 year old woman as she left the Grand Lux Cafe at Boca’s Town Center Mall.

Here is the just leased media report from Boca Raton Police.

The victim, a 76 year old female, told officers she had just finished eating at the Grand Lux Café and was walking to her car. As she approached her car, she noticed a male who was walking past, staring at her. The victim was about to open her car door when she noticed the male was standing behind her. She turned to face the suspect and saw he had put on a ski mask. The suspect tried to grab her purse, but she held it tightly to her chest, refusing to let it go.
