SEABROOK — Police have identified a Massachusetts man wanted in connection with the theft of a wallet last Friday in Seabrook.

Freddy Poisson, 40, of Haverhill, Mass., is wanted in connection with a strong-armed robbery around 4:55 p.m. Friday in the parking lot in front of the Market Basket store at Southgate Plaza, 380 Lafayette Road in Seabrook, police said Monday.

According to police, while loading groceries into her car from her shopping cart, a woman said she saw a man walk by and take her wallet from her purse, which she had placed in the cart. After yelling at the man, the woman reported a physical altercation took place between her and the man, who then fled to his vehicle.

In an attempt to stop the thief, Seabrook police said the woman grabbed on to the front driver’s door of the car, but was thrown off the car as it took a corner and accelerated away.

The woman, whose identity was not released, suffered multiple injuries and was transported by Seabrook Fire Rescue for treatment.

Poisson is described by police as standing approximately 5-foot-10 and is heavyset, with dark, spiked hair. Poisson’s vehicle is described as a silver SUV, unknown make or model.

Police said several witnesses provided information and footage from surveillance cameras has been reviewed.

Any witnesses who did not speak with police or provide information at the scene are asked to call Seabrook police at 474-5200, the anonymous crime line at 474-2640, or come to the Seabrook Police Department in person at 7 Liberty Lane.
