Police are searching for two men who they say snatched a purse from a woman in Manhattan last week.

Investigators say the men approached the victim on Riverside Drive in Manhattanville around 10 p.m. Thursday night and robbed her.

Police say the suspects ran north on Riverside Drive, then down West 125th Street toward Broadway.

Surveillance video shows the two men running away.

The woman was not injured.
