Richland County, SC-- Richland County deputies are searching for two suspects they say stole a woman's purse in a grocery store parking lot.

The incident took place at the Food Lion at 2312 Decker Boulevard.

Deputies say as a woman was getting in her car when a suspect ran up behind her and took her purse. The victim, however, held on to her purse, and the suspect dragged her to a waiting vehicle with another suspect inside. The suspects drove off, but the victim continued to hold onto the purse, and was dragged alongside the vehicle.

The car eventually drove away, and the woman sustained injuries to her legs.

The suspects' vehicle is described as a dark green Jeep Cherokee. Surveillance images captured one of the men, and those pictures are attached to this article.

Anyone with information should call Crimestoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
