Police are looking for a man who robbed a woman outside a Spokane drug store just after noon on Monday.

The man followed the victim as she left the Rite Aid, 5520 N. Division St., and attacked her, according to police.

She was in the parking lot when he grabbed her purse and knocked her to the ground before driving away in a full-size black pickup truck with 4x4 written on the back, police said Tuesday.

Surveillence photos and video show the robber to be a white man, about 6 feet tall, wearing a brown Carhartt jacket, jeans, white shoes and a light colored ball cap with a green bill.

Anyone with information on his current location is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS or submit tips online.
