Posted: Updated:

ARNOLD, Mo. (KMOV.com) - Arnold police are looking for four suspects involved in the robbery of a woman in the parking lot of the Walmart store near I-55 and Highway 141 around 6:45 pm Monday.

Detectives say one of the suspects was hiding between cars and jumped out and grabbed a woman's purse. During the struggle most of the contents fell on the ground and the suspect only got away with a few checks. However, during the struggle the suspect fell and hit his face on the pavement.

"She said I know he has to have road rash on his face,” said Tammy McCoy, a relative of the victim.

Investigators say one of the suspects went in the store and was caught on a surveillance camera. A witness reportedly got the license plate number of the getaway car.

Police believe the suspects live in the Imperial area and it's only a matter of time before they're caught.
