Sheriff's deputies are looking for help identifying two men who allegedly attempted to steal a purse from a woman. The 89-year-old woman was injured in the incident.

According to a news release from the Pima County Sheriff's Department, the victim was returning to her car after shopping at the Safeway at 4752 E. Sunrise Dr. on April 27 at about 6:30 a.m.

She was approached by a man who asked her for money. When she refused to give him money, he allegedly tried to grab her purse. The victim fell and hit her head during the struggle.

A bystander who witnessed the incident, called out to the suspect, who got away in a car without the purse.

Deputies say video surveillance shows two men associated with the car, which was reported stolen and later located, entering a convenience store.

One of the men in the video matches the description given by the victim. She described him as having light complexion and wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt and sunglasses. The man in the video appears to be in his early twenties, wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt with a black shirt under it, a black hat and carrying a back pack.

The second man in the video appears to be white, in his early twenties, wearing a black and gray flannel shirt and a red and white baseball cap.

Anyone who has any information about the identity of these men or the incident is urged to call 911 or 88-CRIME.
