Egg Harbor Township police have released photos of two men they believe are responsible for stealing a woman’s purse at a grocery store last month.

Police said the two suspects approached a female victim in a checkout line at the ShopRite at English Creek Shopping Center on July 23. One suspect distracted the victim and the other removed the purse, police said. The two then fled the store.

The suspects are described as white men in their 20s, with thin to medium builds and between 5-feet 6-inches and 5-feet 8-inches tall. The suspect in the red shirt had a goatee and a tattoo on his left forearm. The suspect in the black shirt had no distinctive characteristics.

Anyone with any information on the identity of the suspects in this incident can contact Officer Kyle Warren of the Egg Harbor Township Police Department at 609-926-4051.
