Authorities are searching for a purse snatcher apparently on the loose in the subways. Now, police have released a sketch of the suspect.

They say the man has struck four times in the last five days.

In each instance, police say the man grabs a woman's purse and then runs into the subway tunnel.

All of the robberies have happened inside subway stations in Manhattan during the morning rush hours.
