By Staff | Mar 5, 2018

A woman was mugged Saturday around 5:30 p.m. in the Rite Aid parking lot in New Martinsville.

According to Chief of Police Tim Cecil, the woman was parked on the north side of the building toward 4th Street.

Upon exiting the store, a male suspect dressed in all black grabbed the woman’s purse. Clutching to her purse, the lady was dragged up a hill until the suspect eventually gained control of the purse. The woman then chased the suspect on foot, running south on 4th Street.

Cecil said there are no suspects at this time. If anyone knows any information regarding the crime, please contact the New Martinsville Police Department at 304-455-9100.
