The victim chased after Holly and found her on the corner of Girod and Magazine with his wallet. As he tried to get his things back, she hit and scratched him.

Police were able to freeze a photo of the suspect from surveillance video. If you can help identify this woman, call the Eighth District Detective Unit at (504) 658-6080.
