Woman reports assault, attempted robbery on North Keeneland Drive

RICHMOND — Police are looking for two men who they believe attacked a woman while she was walking and tried to steal her purse.

Richmond officers were sent to North Keeneland and Keystone Drive at 6:22 a.m. Wednesday after receiving a report about an attempted robbery, according to a news release from Chief Larry Brock.

The woman told the officers she had been walking north on N. Keeneland Drive when two men approached her, the release stated. She said one of the men asked if she had a cigarette.

When the woman said she did not, the man tried to grab her purse and punched her in the face, Brock said. The woman was knocked to the ground, and the two men started kicking her while trying to take her purse.

The men were not able to get the purse away from the woman, and they fled on foot, Brock said. Officers searched the area but did not find the men.

The woman suffered injuries to her face, according to the release.

One suspect was described as a white man about 25 years old with short hair and a slender face wearing a green shirt and black pants. The second suspect was a black man about 25 years old with very short hair or none at all, wearing a white T-shirt and blue jeans.
