PHOENIX -

Silent Witness is offering up a $1,000 reward for help finding two attempted purse-snatching suspects.

About 7 p.m., Wednesday, August 7, a 67-year-old woman was loading groceries into her car in the Fry's parking lot at 42nd Ave and Cactus Road.

She was approached by a man who grabbed her purse from the shopping cart and got into the driver's side of a parked vehicle.

The man handed the purse to a female suspect in the passenger seat.

The victim followed the suspect and reached into the car from the passenger side, playing tug-of-war with the female suspect. The 67-year-old was eventually able to recover her purse.

The suspects fled in a gray 2002 Nissan Sentra, and a witness was able to take very clear photos of the suspects.

The victim suffered minor scratches to her hands and wrists during the struggle.

The man is described as a white male, 18-25 years old, 5'7"-5'9", 150-170 lbs. The woman is described as a white female, 18-25 years old, 5'4"-5'7", 120-150 lbs. They are facing charges of strong armed robbery.

TIPLINE: Silent Witness at 480 W-I-T-N-E-S-S (480-948-6377) or toll free at 1-800-343-TIPS

    If an iced coffee from Dunkin' Donuts is part of your afternoon routine, expect a nudge to buy a cookie or doughnut you didn't plan on. Dunkin' Brands CEO Nigel Travis said in a phone interview Thursday that the company is pushing to get its cashiers to "upsell" to afternoon customers. It's part of an effort to increase sales after stores have emptied out after the morning rush.
