Police are looking for information on a man they said climbed in the window of a home and used a knife to steal a woman’s purse.
Police responded about 10:25 p.m. to the 1200 block of 2nd Street on a complaint of burglary and armed robbery, Gulfport Police Sgt. Joshua Bromen said.
The suspect had fled but video surveillance showed him and a second person leaving the home on foot, Bromen said.
Several people were in the home at the time, including a man and woman who were in a bedroom when the suspect took the purse at knifepoint, Bromen said.
