DeWitt Police searching for purse snatching suspect: Fugitive of the Week

This week’s fugitive is 34-year-old William Reed, who’s suspected of snatching a woman’s purse last summer at the Swiss Village Apartments.
DeWitt (WSYR-TV) -- DeWitt Police say a robbery suspect they’ve been looking for for months may have struck again in the City of Syracuse.

This week’s fugitive is 34-year-old William Reed, who’s suspected of snatching a woman’s purse last summer at the Swiss Village Apartments.

Police say Reed snuck up on the woman who was knocking on a door when he ripped her purse from her shoulder and ran off.

“[Reed’s] six feet tall with a muscular build. He actually sought this woman out, came out of the laundry room and came up from behind her,” said Lt. John Anton with DeWitt Police. “He's kind of flown off the radar and he's supposed to be somewhere in the city of Syracuse, and was involved in a city incident most recently.”

If you know where police can find Reed, give them a call at 449-3640, or email tips to tips@townofdewitt.com.

Reed is 6’1” tall and weighs 230 pounds.
