GRAND FORKS — Police are looking for a man they say robbed a woman outside an apartment complex early Monday morning, July 4.

According to police, it happened in the 1800 block of 28th Avenue South, which is southeast of Bringewatt Park, shortly after 4 a.m. Monday.

The victim was trying to get into the apartment building, when the man came up behind her, and grabbed her purse off her shoulder, police said.

He then got on a bike and rode away, but it's unclear which direction he went.

Police said they're looking for a white man in his early 20's, who's about 5 feet 8 inches tall.


He was last seen wearing a sleeveless shirt, gray shorts and a hat.

Officers were able to recover evidence in the area of Westminster Court, and they're asking people who live in that area, as well as business owners, to check any cameras they own.

If you have any information about the robbery or the suspect, you're asked to call Grand Forks police at 701-787-8000, submit a tip through the Tip411 app or through the Grand Forks Police Department's Facebook page.
