Falls police reported two out-of-town visitors were the victims of thieves on Tuesday and Wednesday while in the downtown area.
A woman from California told officers that sometime between 8 and 9 p.m. Tuesday someone snatched her $1,000 Louis Vuitton purse while they were eating dinner at a Prospect Street eatery. The purse also contained $700.
Officers reviewed security footage from the restaurant but could not spot a suspect.
On Wednesday morning, a man from India said he was eating breakfast at a First Street eatery when his bag containing two passports and $200 was stolen.
The man said he did spot the suspect and captured the incident on video with his cell phone. Officers said it showed a white male, 5-foot-10, 215 pounds with brown short hair wearing a blue and white checkered shirt walk up and place his coat on the bag and then grab both items and head for the exit.
Officers were able to get security footage from a nearby building that showed the man getting into a blue or black four-door sedan and driving off.
