Clarksville police investigated a robbery outside of Governors’ Square Mall from last night.
Officers were called to the rear entrance near Old Navy around 7:30 after a mall employee was walking back to her vehicle and heard footsteps behind her. The victim said she turned around and saw a suspect with his hands up as if he had a handgun.
She said it was obvious he was not armed and did not comply when he demanded her purse. The perpetrator then grabbed her purse and pulled it away in a violent manner, throwing her to the ground.
The suspect then got into a white vehicle and drove away.
