A Musella woman fought to retain her purse Tuesday morning when an unidentified man tried to take it from her in the parking lot of Wal-Mart, 6020 Harrison Road.
Witnesses told Bibb County deputies that 54-year-old Rhonda Harris was walking to her vehicle when the man ran toward her and snatched her purse. She held onto the purse and was pulled to the ground until the man was able to get the purse away from her, according to a news release.
The man is described as being a 5-foot 8-inch tall or 5-foot 9-inch tall black man of medium build in his mid-20s wearing all black clothing. He ran away after the incident, according to the release.
Surveillance footage shows the man getting out of the passenger side of a gold, mid-sized Dodge Ram truck a few minutes before the incident, according to the sheriff’s office.
Harris sustained minor injuries to her knee, according to the release.
Anyone with information is asked to call the sheriff’s office at 746-9441 or Macon Regional CrimeStoppers at (877) 68-CRIME.
