On Sunday afternoon, officers responded to a parking lot at 5000 Ritchie Highway South for a robbery.
A 58-year-old woman had just left Pizza Hut when a suspect approached. According to police, the man implied he had a weapon in his waistband and reached for the woman's purse.
The victim bit the suspect's hand and struggled with him, but he got her purse. The victim was not hurt.
The suspect ran to a vehicle in the same parking lot and drove off. His vehicle is described as a tan or gold minivan or SUV with Maryland tags containing the numbers '460' in some variation.
