In an email to Patch, Police Officer John Chafee wrote that the victim stated she had just gotten in her vehicle at approximately 3:40 p.m., when two black men with guns appeared and ordered her to get out of it.
Unable to start the vehicle in a failed attempt to steal it, the men robbed the victim of her purse and fled in a black truck.
One of the men was described as standing 5-foot-5, with a medium-to-dark complexion, wearing a grey sweat suit, a grey, purple knit winter hat, and a scarf covering his face. There was no description provided by police of the second suspect.
The investigation is ongoing.
