As the suspect grabbed the shoppers purse and attempted to flee, the victim reportedly fought back and in the struggle, the suspect managed to get the purse away from the victim.
The suspect fled the scene in a dark colored four-door sedan with tinted windows, which pulled up beside the women as they were struggling. A white male accomplice was reportedly driving the vehicle.
Fortunately the victim in this case was not seriously injured and the entire event was captured on the stores video surveillance, Bowen said.
Police are asking for anyone with information about this crime to contact the department at 444-2323.
