At around 8:30 p.m., the woman, who requires the use of a wheelchair, was putting the chair into her vehicle when she was approached by a male suspect who pointed a handgun at her and demanded money. She told the suspect she had no money. The suspect observed her purse sitting on the front seat, grabbed it and ran.

He was wearing blue jeans and a black hooded sweatshirt. He had facial acne and it appeared he had a shaved head. The second suspect was also male, wearing blue jeans and a black sweatshirt.
