At 8:17 p.m. on February 28th, Fairview Heights Police responded to 4701 North Illinois Street for an attempted robbery at a Target store.
 
Police say the victim first had contact with a female suspect in the women’s restroom. The suspect engaged in small talk, but when the victim exited the restroom, the suspect grabbed her purse and attempted to take it.  A struggle started and the victim screamed for help.
