A Des Moines woman suffered bruises to her face after nearly being run over by a car during a robbery Tuesday night.

The 65 year old victim was getting into her car after leaving Walgreens on Southeast 14th Street just after 5pm Tuesday, when a woman came up behind her and tried to steal her purse.

The victim bit the suspect and struggled with the bag before a second suspect drove up and hit the victim's car door, knocking her to the ground.

The female suspect is white, 5 foot 5, and 125 pounds. The black male suspect with a pony tail was driving a red Jeep Laredo.
