A Port Arthur woman says she was robbed Sunday evening as she left church.

Around 6:30 p.m. officers were called to the 1700 block of 7th Street where the robbery had just happened.  The victim told police she had just walked out of the church when a man walked up to her and started a conversation.  At some point the man pulled out a small black handgun and grabbed the woman's purse before running off with it. 

Witnesses said the man ran to a small red vehicle and drove off.

Officers searched the area and did not find the robber.
