By  | 

A man robbed a woman outside a Colorado Springs medical marijuana dispensary.

It happened Monday night at Rocky Mountain Miracles on E. Bijou in Colorado Springs.

As an employee was standing near her car in the parking lot a white minivan pulled up next to her car. A man got out of the minivan and demanded her purse.

The employee tells 11 News, originally she didn't want to give up her purse, so she struggled to keep it until the man pointed a gun at her head and chest. She let the purse go and she chased them for a few blocks until she lost them.

Police were called to investigate. There were a total of three men in the vehicle. One of the men was described as a black man, 25 to 30 years old, with a medium build, around 5 feet 7 inches to 5 feet 8 inches, wearing a blue jacket and blue jeans.

One of the other men is described as a black man between the ages of 20 and 30, wearing a gray shirt and baggy pants.

The description of the driver was vague.

Both suspects had guns. The vehicle was a white minivan, the window was broken in the back and covered with plastic.

This was not the first time someone was robbed outside this business. A patient was robbed at gunpoint on Jan. 8. Police do not believe the two robberies are connected.

If you recognize the van, call Crime Stoppers at 634-STOP.
