JPD releases surveillance footage of snatch-and-grab cyclist

The Juneau Police Department has released this surveillance video showing the suspect in last week’s snatch-and-grab robbery outside the Little Hong Kong restaurant at the Mendenhall Mall.

The suspect’s face isn’t visible in the video, but police hope someone can identify him by his clothes or gait.

Police say the suspect rode a bicycle and took a bag of cash and receipts from a petite restaurant employee as she was leaving Thursday night. She chased him down, knocked him to the ground and took his bike, but he got away on foot with the bag.

Call 586-0600 with tips, or report them online at JuneauCrimeLine.com. You may be eligible for a reward.
