Police are investigating a robbery from last night in which a woman had her purse taken after being shoved to the ground.

The crime was reported at 9:16 p.m. in the 400 block of West Gladstone Street. The 32-year-old woman and her 2-year-old son were in the parking lot of her apartment complex when a man approached them. The suspect pushed the woman down and took her red purse, said Lt. Matt Williams of Glendora Police.

The woman was too distraught to get a look at the suspect, but described a possible white car as the getaway vehicle, Williams said.

Neither the woman, nor her son were injured.
