Philadelphia police are looking for the man they say slashed a woman's face and then stole her purse.
The incident happened on the 700 block of South 9th Street on November 11 at 4:05am.
The offender approached the 23-year old woman from behind and struck her face, causing a large laceration which required 110 stitches. The suspect then stole the woman's purse. He fled on foot towards Fitzwater Street.
The purse was located a short time later in a nearby alley.
A $12,500 reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the culprit.
The suspects description is as follows: White male, thin build, wearing a white hooded sweatshirt with an emblem on left side of hood, black pants and dark colored shoes.

We're getting rain well ahead of our cold front. Expect to need that umbrella on and off all day and tonight, too. A bit messy, unfortunately, for First Friday activities.
With the blast of cold air that follows, we'll probably have a dry day on Saturday, and the chance of a Sunday wintry mix into the afternoon and evening. A light coating could occur for some before a changeover to rain. Stay tuned!
