ST. PETERS, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

Police have arrested two suspects they say tried to rob a woman in parking lot of Costco in St. Peters.

A woman, 29, was loading groceries into her car on the Costco parking lot Thursday around 6:45 p.m. when police say Dominique Stephenson, 22, and Tyler Gutman, 24, ran to her cart and stole her purse.

Police believe one of the suspects then got into a waiting a car, but the victim chased him and caught up to him when she got on the passenger side door.  In an effort to get her off the car, the suspect opened the passenger door, causing her to fall off the vehicle.

The suspect then fell out of the car with purse and got back in before the car drove away. He left the purse behind.

Both have been charged with robbery in the second degree and issued a $35,000 bond. They are currently being held in the St. Charles County Jail.
