Police say as the 55-year-old woman left the business on the 2300 block of E. Bijou St., a man came out of a white mini-van, pointed a gun at her and demanded her purse. The suspect struggled to get the woman's purse, at which point a second suspect from the mini-van came out and also pointed a gun at the woman. The suspects eventually stole the purse and drove away.
