Police are looking for a brazen robber who broke the passenger window of a car arriving at a Ventura home, and stole the purse of an 80 year old woman.

It happened just before noon Wednesday (10/5), on the 900 block of Montgomery Avenue.

After the man broke the window, the woman tried to hang on to her pruse, but he pulled it away, and fled in a car.  The woman was unhurt.

Ventura police are hoping someone may have seen something, or found the purse which might help identify the robber, who’s described as a short, heavyset man in his 40’s.
