Belmont police are searching for a man and a woman in a purse snatching that took place at the El Camino Real Safeway store mid-January, according to a Belmont police lieutenant. The man was seen on store security cameras taking the purse from the cart of a 79-year-old San Carlos woman who was shopping in the store, located at 1100 El Camino Real, on Jan. 13 around 5:30 or 6 p.m., Belmont police Lt. Patrick Halleran said.

The man, described as a heavy-set African-American man, between 35 and 45 years old with a medium complexion, medium height with a shaved or bald head, was seen leaving the store with a woman. She was described as a heavy-set African-American woman, between 35 and 45 years old with a dark complexion, medium height and with her hair pulled back into a bun, police said.

The victim in the theft had set her purse in the child seat portion of her cart and walked away from it while shopping. Police are reminding residents not to leave valuables unattended in shopping carts, because it only takes a moment for a thief to steal your property, Halleran said.
