New Orleans, La. - New Orleans police are looking for a man who stole a woman's purse in the French Quarter Sunday.

At about midnight, the victims were walking back to their hotel when they stopped to ask a man  for directions. The man told them to follow him and he would show them. 

While walking, the victim stumbled at Toulouse and Dauphine streets, and the man grabbed her purse and ran. 

The suspect is described as a white male, approximately 30 to 40 years old, wearing a bluish-green hat, a bluish-green T-shirt with a logo on the front and back and blue jeans.
