The 44-year-old victim and her two brothers were unloading packages from a car at her Southern Parkway residence Saturday night when, police said, they were approached by a man described as being "tall, thin, with a sunken face, wearing a black ski cap and armed with a revolver."
After pointing his gun at the woman, the suspect grabbed her pocketbook and ran southbound on Davis Avenue to a four door gray Honda, police said. He was last seen on Park Avenue.
Police said no one was injured during the robbery.
Police ask anyone with information to contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-244-TIPS. All calls will be kept confidential, police said.
