Attempted Robbery

Posted on 29th August 2011 at 07:57

A woman tells Kelso Police that someone tried to steal her purse early this morning. At about 1:15 this morning, a 911 call came in from the victim, claiming that a woman in a Ford Explorer had tried to grab her purse as she was in the parking lot of the stores in the 200 block of Southwest 7th, then the man at the wheel started driving off, dragging her along. It doesn’t appear that the suspect were successful in the theft attempt, so this is being investigated as an attempted robbery and vehicular assault. A possible suspect has been identified, but no arrests have been reported as of yet.
