Sugar Land police are looking for two men who tried to rob a woman in the parking lot of the Wal-Mart located at the corner of US90A and State Highway 6 in Sugar Land.
Police spokesman Dough Adolph said a 42 year old woman had just walked out of the Wal-Mart store about midnight on April 5 when she was accosted by a man as she approached her vehicle. The strange man tried to steal her purse and she fought back, being knocked to the ground and dragged a short distance.
When the victim began to yell for help, the suspect ran away, said Adolph. According to Adolph, the woman suffered scrapes, bruises, and a fractured foot.
The suspect was described as a black male, 20 to 25 years old, about 5′ 5″ and weighing 120 pounds. At the time of the incident he was wearing a black shirt and black shorts with a white stripe. The victim told police he had a tattoo under his right eye.
The suspect was last seen leaving the parking lot in a black Mercedes car accompanied by another male. That second man was described as a 25 to 30 year-old, also a black man, 6′ and weighing 300 pounds.
Anyone with information should call the Sugar Land Police Department at (281) 275-2540 or Fort Bend County Crime Stoppers at (281) 342-TIPS (8477).
