Deputies scoured a section of Canyon Country on Friday, looking for a suspected purse-snatcher.

Shortly after 1:15 p.m., deputies with the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station responded to reports a woman had her purse stolen at a restaurant on Sierra Highway, near Soledad Canyon Road.

“This was a strong-arm robbery,” Lt. Leo Bauer said, noting no one was injured in the incident.

Deputies received reports the suspect was driving a tan sedan, possibly a Honda or Toyota, last seen traveling eastbound on Sierra toward Soledad.

No one was arrested in the incident.
