At approximately 8:30pm on October 8, 2013, a 60 year old white female was walking to her car at Walmart at 3820 Hwy 64 West. The female placed her groceries into her vehicle and walked her buggy to a cart return location. As the female was walking back to her vehicle, she was approached by a suspect who grabbed her purse. The female refused to let go of her purse and the suspect threw her to the ground, still attempting to take the purse. A nearby customer heard the victim screaming and ran to assist. The suspect then fled on foot.
The victim sustained minor injuries and refused medical treatment.
The suspect is described as a black male approximately 6'0" tall with an average build. He is between the ages of 35 and 40. The suspect was wearing a pink polo shirt and blue jeans. Store video shows the suspect entering a white vehicle and leaving the scene towards the Hwy 64 exit. The vehicle may be a Buick LeSabre.
Anyone with information concerning this incident is urged to contact the Tyler Police Department at (903)531-1000.
