The woman was robbed as she walked off a Transit Windsor Bus in front of the apartment building located at 4365 Wyandotte Street East.

The man walked up to the woman and grabbed her purse. The woman attempted to hang on to the purse and screamed for help. At this point, the man pushed the woman to the ground, ripped the purse away and ran westbound on Wyandotte Street. As the woman got back up to her feet, she observed a second male running away with the first suspect.
