Nicholasville police say an elderly woman broke her hip, after her purse was stolen Thursday.

Police say a man in the Wal-Mart parking lot snatched a purse from an 84-year-old woman, pushing her to the ground in the process.  He then fled the area on foot. 

The man was described by witnesses as a white male between 5’10” and 6’1” with a thin build.  He had short light brown or blond hair and was wearing a white T-shirt, blue jeans, and work boots.  Officers were unable to locate the suspect.

The purse was recovered shortly after the incident on Groggins Ferry Road in Jessamine County.  All the contents of the purse were still inside, including money. Police say the purse was returned to the family of the victim.

The victim was transported to the hospital due to a broken hip that she received during the attack.
