A woman was robbed of her purse at gunpoint Jan. 2 in the 8100 block of Harford Road in Parkville.

The victim was walking to her car at about 7:35 p.m. when another car pulled up beside her, according to Parkville Police Precinct 8's online police blotter.

The passenger in the car pointed a gun at her and demanded her purse, according to the report. The suspect grabbed her purse off her shoulder and jumped back into the vehicle.

One suspect is a thin male, and the other is a white male, with a large build and an olive complexion, according to police.

One was thin and the other was white?

Shirley, patch is a liberal publication. It's ok to say a "white" person committed a crime, but avoid saying that a minority committed a crime. They have been called out for this many times...

This is the information provided by the police; has nothing to do with any perceived notions about Patch's "liberalism." — Marge

So does that mean thin is a new race? I should be watching out for a thin male stealing purses. That sure helps.

That's a good response, even though in the past, other publications posted the races of the suspects.

That's a shame that one can't walk in a public place without being attacked/robbed.

Shirley-I noticed that comment also. I think they may do that as most people automatically think it is an American of African descent. Just like the guy that robbed the White Marsh McDonalds recently! Wonder if that fits the bill for reverse discrimination?
