LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

Police released a new image Sunday of a man being sought in connection with a string of purse snatchings in northwest Las Vegas.

Earlier this month, Las Vegas Metro police said the man is targeting women in retail stores, groceries and casinos, going after their purses and wallets.

In one of the cases, a woman was injured when the man ripped her wallet from her hand, investigators said. They said the man also robbed a woman of her wallet outside a grocery store in the Centennial Hills area, near Ann Road.

On Sunday, police said the new image was taken during another incident that happened in northern part of the Las Vegas Valley.

The man was described by police as white, about 5'10" tall with a thin build. They said the man is believed to be driving a small, gray four-door sedan.

Anyone with information is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555.
