(Grand Forks, ND) -- The Grand Forks Police Department investigating a robbery early Monday morning.

Authorities say just after 4 a.m. they were called to the 1800 block of 28th avenue south. That's where officers say the victim was entering a nearby apartment complex when an male suspect, described as white, 5'8" with a slim build and short hair in a sleeveless shirt, gray shorts and hat grabbed her purse, got on a bicycle and rode away. There was some evidence found near Westminster Court.

Grand Forks Police are asking any businesses or residents who have outdoor cameras in the area to check their footage for tips.

If you know anything about the robbery, you're asked to call GFPD as soon as possible at (701) 787-8000.
