A woman was mugged in a Springs parking lot Tuesday night. Police are still searching for the suspect.
Police were called to the Kohl’s Department Store parking lot at 4910 N. Nevada Ave. just before 8 p.m. Tuesday after a woman reported her purse stolen. The woman had been getting something out of car when she was shoved from behind by the suspect, who then grabbed her purse and fled the parking lot. Officers searched the area thoroughly, but there was no sign of the suspect.
The victim was unable to determine the race, sex or age of the suspect, and only knows that he or she was wearing a black hoodie and red sweatpants. Police say that no weapons were reported at the scene, and the only additional information they have at this time is that the suspect ran eastbound when leaving the scene.
Anyone with any information on this crime are asked to call Crime Stoppers at 634-STOP.
