“On September 3rd, at approximately 1:20 p.m., Officers from the First District responded to the 300 block of 13th St SE for a report of a robbery. Officers spoke with an adult female victim who stated that a male suspect ran by her as she was unloading groceries from her vehicle. As the suspect ran by, he pulled her purse from her shoulder and continued running. A witness observed the robbery and chased the suspect for a short distance. The suspect eventually dropped the victim’s property, but was able to flee the area. The suspect is described as a black male, approximately 16-18 years old, wearing a gray t-shirt and blue jeans. Fortunately, the victim was not injured during the incident and her property was returned.
