Lexington police believe the same man is to blame for two purse thefts Wednesday night.
Police say both incidents happened within an hour of each other. Investigators say the first purse snatching happened just before midnight on Church Street. The woman says the man took her handbag and sprinted through a church parking lot. Police say the next mugging happened near Limestone Street. That woman also says a man grabbed her purse and took off. So far no arrests have been made.
