Lawrence Police on Thursday evening were searching for a man after he reportedly attempted to snatch a purse in a parking lot of Dillons, 1015 W. 23rd St.

Police Sgt. Craig Shanks said that around 7:15 p.m., a man came up behind a Lawrence woman walking in the lot and attempted to grab her purse. The woman prevented his attempt and the man then ran away toward Alabama Street.

Shanks said the woman described the man as 5-foot-8, weighing 150 pounds and wearing a black Kansas University sweatshirt and shorts. The woman was not injured.

"... described the man as 5-foot-8, weighing 150 pounds and wearing a black Kansas University sweatshirt and shorts."

Can't imagine I would do any better on a description. Yet, a picture may help ...

It would be racist if they described him as white/black/asian/hispanic.

It would be racist to assume a particular race without having any such information. Perhaps the LJW is not reporting race because they simply don't have any information about that.
