As she got out of her car and checked her mail, a man “pushed the victim to the ground and took her purse by force,” police said.

That man then jumped into a waiting blue sedan and fled the scene headed east on Indian Hills Drive. He is described as being about 5 feet, 7 inches tall and weighing 160 pounds, and he was wearing a ski mask and dark clothing.

The woman’s purse contained jewelry worth $3,000, $1,000 in foreign cash and her cell phone, police said.
