HEBRON, Md.- A driver added insult to injury when he allegedly rear-ended a woman's car in Hebron and then snatched her purse when she got out of the vehicle to exchange information with him.

The Wicomico County Sheriff's Office said the incident occurred shortly after 4 p.m. New Year's Eve on the 300 block of North Main Street in Hebron. According to police, the suspect had bumped the victim's car from behind with his pickup truck. The suspect then got out of his pickup and approached the victim in what was believed to be an attempt to initiate an exchange of information. It was at this point that police said the suspect grabbed the victim's purse and wallet. Police said that despite the victim's resistance, the suspect finally managed to wrestle the purse and wallet away from her before returning to his truck and fleeing the scene.

The suspect is described as a tall white male with a hooded sweatshirt. His pickup is described as black, possibly a Toyota model and may have spots of gray primer on it.

Anyone with information about this crime is asked to contact the Sheriff's Office at (410) 548-4890. You can also report information anonymously to Crime Solvers at (410) 548-1776. Information provided to Crime Solvers that leads to an arrest in this case will be eligible for a cash reward.
