Police were called to North Main Street and say a man tried to take the woman’s purse as she was walking to her car. She was able to hold on to her property, and the man then fled the area.

Authorities say the victim did suffer a minor injury during the altercation.

The man is described as white, possibly Hispanic and 5-feet-10 to 6-feet tall with a slightly stocky build. He was wearing a grey hooded sweat shirt, blue jeans and white sneakers at the time.
