Police are searching for two men in connection with a robbery that occurred early Thursday morning in the 900 block of Broadhead Street.

Just before 1 a.m., a woman came home and was sitting in the driver’s seat of her vehicle when a man approached her, according to a release by Columbia Police Sgt. Eric Stevenson. The woman told police that the man reached into her vehicle and took her purse from her lap. The suspect and a second man who appeared to be involved fled on foot to the east, Stevenson said.

Anyone with any information is requested to call CrimeStoppers at 875-8477. Informants can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000 if information leads to an arrest.
