WESTPORT, Conn. A Danbury man suspected in an attempted purse snatching outside CVS in Westport is being sought by police, the department announced Friday.
Brendan S. Kravarik, 20, is wanted in connection with a Jan. 23 incident in which a Weston woman was pushed to the ground and then dragged by a man trying to steal her purse in the front parking lot of CVS on Post Road East, Capt. Sam Arciola said in a statement.
The suspect let go of the womans handbag when she began screaming, and he got into a car that drove away, police said.
