A robber snatched a 63-year-old Columbus woman's purse Tuesday evening in the parking lot of Fred's Discount Store on Auburn Avenue.
The victim was sitting in her vehicle waiting for her husband to finish his shopping at the 1900 Auburn Ave. store when a man approached and asked for money. She told him she didn't have any, a police report said.
The suspect then reached into her vehicle and grabbed her purse. He sped off in small dark green or blue vehicle.
