STAMFORD, Conn. -- Stamford police are looking for a well-dressed man who dragged a woman into the street Tuesday night while trying to snatch her purse, the Stamford Advocate reports.

The woman, who refused medical treatment, told police she and a friend were walking from the grocery store to the bus stop along West Main Street near Commerce Road when she noticed the man. Both women were carrying groceries along with their purses, the Stamford Advocate said.

The man grabbed the 37-year-old woman's purse and she held on, the Stamford Advocate said. He dragged her into the middle of the street before getting control of the purse and running off, according to the Stamford Advocate.
