ENOLA, Pa. (WHTM) – Police need help identifying a man who tried to steal a woman’s purse at the Summerdale Plaza in Enola.

It happened last week in front of the Shur Fine grocery store on Enola Road.

Police said the woman was loading groceries into her vehicle when a man in hooded sweatshirt displayed a small knife and demanded that she hand over her purse.
