Tonight Colorado Springs Police are searching for a pair of suspects who robbed a woman in the middle of the day at a popular shopping center parking lot.
It happened at 4 p.m. on Saturday near 8th street and Cimarron on the west side of Colorado Springs.
Lynn Butterfield just got out of her minivan in a parking lot near Hobby Lobby. She was there, waiting for the bus to Cripple Creek when a car parked next to hers. The passenger got out.
“He said give me your purse and then he started to back up and was shoving something black at me,” explained Lynn Butterfield.
He was armed with some kind of weapon. He grabbed Butterfield's purse right out of her hands.
“I started screaming, people came from Hobby Lobby and another man came behind me,” said Butterfield.
The suspects sped off with Butterfield’s cash. She is still shaken up but wants everyone to be alert at all times of the day. She believes the men were watching her and waited for the perfect time.
"Just be aware of your surroundings, I was not."
Police say the getaway car is a sliver four door sedan, possibly a Toyota. There were no license plates on the car.
Anyone with information about this robbery is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 634-STOP.
