Police say this woman is accused of stealing an unattended purse at a Chinese restaurant in November.

Police are looking for a woman who last month snatched an unattended purse off a chair at a Chinese restaurant in Flushing and fled.

The grand larceny took place at Good Fortune Restaurant, at 46-45 Kissena Boulevard, on Nov. 30 at about noon.

The suspect — described as an Asian woman with long black hair and brown eyes — allegedly took the bag off a chair after a 25-year-old female victim left it behind to go to the bathroom, police said.

The thief walked out of the restaurant and fled in a 2013 black Mercedes Benz, according to authorities.

Officers of the 109th Precinct urge residents to keep their valuables close while shopping and dining and not to leave them unattended, especially in restaurants, cars and shopping carts.

Anyone with information should call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-8477.
