ALERT: Cliffside purse snatcher targeting elderly women near banks

Cliffside Park police are asking the public’s help in catching a purse snatcher who has victimized at least three elderly women going into or coming out of borough banks the past month.


“Please keep your eyes open for anyone following elderly women either by foot or by car,” borough police said in an alert. If you see anything suspicious, flag down the nearest police officer or dial 911.

Police also urged residents to “remind elderly family members that if they go to the bank to keep their money separate from their pocketbook, because this seems to be the target of the bad guy.”

The thief is described as about 5-foot-7, possibly Hispanic, and wearing a baseball cap.
