PATERSON, NJ - City police say they are investigating whether two 1st Ward muggings that happened 90 minutes apart Tuesday night were committed by the same man.

In the first incident, a 21-year-old woman told authorities she was walking near the corner of Temple and N. 3rd streets at about 8 pm when a man wearing a hoodies came up from behind her, knocked her to the ground and took her purse, police said.

About 90 minutes later, a 32-year-old woman was robbed of her purse under similar circumstances near 162 West Broadway, police said.
