MONFORT HEIGHTS, OH (FOX19) -

Police are looking for a suspect following a purse snatching, chase and crash in Monfort Heights.

A witness tells FOX19 that the suspect jumped into a car Thursday morning in the 3400 block of North Bend Road. A woman sitting in the backseat screamed, so the suspect took the woman's purse and took off in a different car.

The suspect later used a stolen credit card at a UDF. Police found the car there and gave chase.

The suspect eventually crashed the car at Hamilton and Galbraith and took off on foot.

He is still on the loose.

Anyone with information should call Crimestoppers at 513-352-3040.
