TOWN AND COUNTRY, Mo. — Town and Country police are investigating after a woman was injured during a robbery in the parking lot of a grocery store on Sunday afternoon.

The woman described the situation of what happened to 5 On Your Side.

“I was just pushing my grocery cart along, minding my own business,” Sandi McMillin described. “It was very, very bold of them. It was broad daylight, lots of people around.”

McMillin said she feared for her life and is worried about what could happen if the thief targets another victim.

“They’re probably going to get bolder,” she said. “They were going to do whatever they had to do to get that purse.”

One of her credit cards was used a short time later by the suspect in the photo.

Anyone with information should contact Detective Katie Exline at 314-587-2866.
