Woman dragged while fighting to recover purse in gas station robbery

A 35-year-old woman was dragged several feet Monday when she tried to prevent  a robber from making off with her purse during a gas station robbery, Miami-Dade police said.

The woman was pumping gas at a Race Way gas station in the 19800 block of Northwest 57th Avenue when an unknown person opened her door and took her purse, police said.

She then ran to the robber and a struggle ensued over the purse.

A second person, who was driving the getaway car, accelerated,  and dragged the woman a few feet, police said. That driver then struck another vehicle.

The victim was able to recover her purse but robbers got away with her wallet.

Police are searching for two men in connection to this case.

One of the men is said to be between 18 and 25 years old, and was last seen wearing a dark hat, dark shirt and blue shorts.

The other man is said to be between 20 and 25 years old and driving a silver Infiniti FX35.

Anyone with more information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
