(KMOV) – Police are searching for a suspect who robbed an elderly woman outside a north St. Louis Walgreens on Wednesday.
According to police, the victim had just left the Walgreens near the intersection of Union and Page around 11 a.m. when she was approached by a man while crossing the street.
Authorities say the suspect, who was armed with a knife, took the victim’s purse and fled the scene. She was hurt during the incident.
Police say another person seen running on Union into a nearby residence was initially taken in for questioning. He was released after witnesses say he did not match the suspect’s description.
The suspect remains at large.
