Police say a woman was walking from Walmart to a bus stop when she noticed two men at the shelter. After waiting for a bus for about ten minutes, one of the men lunged at her and grabbed her purse.
She was pushed to the ground and punched in the face several times. A witness says the men ran southeast toward the Town Center Apartments. The victim was treated for injuries which included a bloody nose and swelling to her face.
The suspects are both described as young black males in their teens. One is dark-skinned, about 6', with an average build. He was wearing a red scarf or bandana over his face.
The second is light-skinned, about 5'8", with an average build. He was wearing a blue cap, scarf or bandana.
Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers. You can remain anonymous and may earn a cash reward.
