Columbia police are hoping someone will help investigators identify a man caught on camera in a purse-snatching and assault at a grocery store.
The video around 7 p.m. Aug. 18 shows a man leaning against a wall of the Bi-Lo at 4464 Devine St. As a woman leaves the store, the man can be seen grabbing her purse and throwing her to the ground.
The man then runs to the back of the store near the Hampton Park apartments.
The woman was injured in the attack, although not seriously.
Several witnesses gave chase to the suspect, but he could not be found.
