Amarillo police are seeking a man who they said tried to rob a woman of her purse at gunpoint, police said Monday.
About 6 p.m. Sept. 25, police responded to a call of a woman in her 70s who claimed that a man tried to rob her at gunpoint at Market Street United, 2530 S. Georgia St.
She rebuffed him by telling him that she did not have money and “would kick him if he did not leave,” police said. The man then fled, running behind the store.
Investigators noticed that witnesses’ description of the would-be robber matched that of a man in another purse theft case.
