Police report the strong-arm robbery of a woman walking to a car in a parking lot at Kavanaugh and Walnut about 10 p.m. last night.

Detectives interviewed the Victim who stated that she had just walked to her vehicle, that was parked on a parking lot at Kavanaugh and Walnut, and that her purse was draped across her neck. As she was entering her vehicle, she was approached by a black male who grabbed her purse causing her to be slung to the ground. She said the Suspect started dragging her across the ground by her purse towards an unknown vehicle that was waiting for him. She said that, as she was being dragged, her friend in another vehicle, rammed the Suspect vehicle with her car. The Suspect was able to get her purse and he jumped into the waiting vehicle. This friend stated that when she saw the Victim being dragged by her purse, she rammed the Suspect vehicle with her own vehicle in an attempt to keep the Suspects from fleeing. She said the Suspect jumped into the passenger side of the Suspect vehicle and they fled north on Walnut.

The Suspect that was dragging the Victim was described as a medium to dark skinned black male, approximately 5’8” tall with a medium build, wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt. The suspect vehicle is described as dark gray sedan possibly a Honda with damage to the rear passenger side. In the report it mentions a vehicle we stopped at Kavanaugh and Pine that was a possible suspect. It is Not the suspect vehicle or the suspects. The occupants of that vehicle had warrants for their arrest that were not related to this incident. Detectives do have some information on suspects that they are working on.
