Syracuse Police are investigating the theft of a bank bag from a 53 year old victim.

Police say the woman was leaving the Parkview Hotel Friday on East Genesee Street walking to her car when the suspect came up from behind her and snatched the bag of cash from her hands.

The suspect fled north down the driveway and ran through a parking lot. The suspect is described as a black male wearing a red and white shirt.

The victim wasn't hurt during the robbery but city police didn't say how much cash was in the bag.

Anyone with information on the theft is being asked to contact city police at 442-5222.
