COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

Columbus police continue to investigate after a 73-year-old was attacked and robbed at a popular intersection in broad daylight on June 29.

"They took her purse as she was trying to get into her car at 4505 Armour Road and the intersection of Manchester Expressway and Armour Road,” said Officer Paul Moody with the Columbus Police Department.

Officer Moody says the victim sustained injuries to her hip and arm during the robber, but during all of this, something remarkable happened.

"There are two witnesses, when they saw this happening they chased the suspect across the street onto the other side of Armour Road," Officer Moody said.

The suspect is described as a dark skinned male between 5’7” to 6’ tall with approximately 1 inch of thick black hair. Police say he was wearing a grey t-shirt and black shorts at the time of the robbery.

Officials say while it was brave for the two good Samaritans to jump into action along this stretch of road to help the victim, police do not recommend you do this.

"Be sure to be careful, if you see any type of weapon we advise you not to chase after people if they have a weapon, a knife, a gun or something like that, not to chase after people just call 911,” Officer Moody said.

If you know anything about this case you are asked to call Columbus police at (706) 653-3400.

Remember, a reward of up to $1,000 is being offered for information that will lead to an arrest.
