MURRAY, KY (KFVS) -

Police in Murray, Kentucky are looking for a woman who violently robbed an elderly woman then nearly hit her with a car.

According to Sergeant Brant Shutt, it happened in the parking lot of Walmart on Monday, March 20 around 9:15 a.m.

Surveillance video shows a dark colored car, possibly a Toyota Camry or Corolla, with a Tennessee license plate circling the parking lot several times.

The driver backed into a parking stall to wait for the victim to park and get out of her car.

As the victim walked past the suspect's car, the woman lunged out and grabbed the victim's purse and dragged her to the ground.

Sgt. Shutt said after a short struggle over the purse, the suspect got back in her car and quickly sped off, nearly hitting the victim.

Investigators say the suspect is a white female with dark brown or blonde hair with an average build. She is believed to be in her early 20s.

Anyone with information about this crime is asked to call the Murray Police Department at 270-753-1621.
