JACKSON HEIGHTS — Police were looking for two men who snatched a 74-year-old woman’s purse in Jackson Heights.

The woman was walking westbound on Northern Boulevard near 86th Street Friday at about 6:20 a.m. when the two men came up behind her and took her purse off her shoulder, police said. The men ran away afterward, police said.

The woman was not hurt in the incident, police said.

The first suspect is a Hispanic man about 20 to 25 years old, police said. Authorities described him as dark skinned and neatly groomed with a heavy build. When last seen he was wearing blue jeans, a jacket with a checkered pattern and a blue New York Yankees baseball cap, police said.

The second suspect is also a Hispanic man of about the same age but he is light skinned with a thin build, police said. When last seen he was wearing blue jeans and a hooded sweatshirt that was either blue or gray, police said.
