Clovis police are investigating a Thursday night purse snatching.

A woman told police she was getting into her vehicle in the Albertson’s parking lot on North Prince Street just before 9 p.m. when a man grabbed her purse and pushed her into her vehicle, police Capt. Patrick Whitney said by e-mail.

The suspect left the scene in a sport utility vehicle.

No injuries were reported, Whitney said.

Whitney said police want to remind people to pay attention to their surroundings and report suspicious activity.
