The Port Arthur Police Department is investigating a robbery that happened at the HEB store located at 3401 Gulfway Drive. The incident happened at 5:20p.m. Saturday. A 63-year-old woman told police officers a man struck her in the face with his fist and grabbed her purse as she exited the store and was walking to her car. The suspect fled on foot behind the store with the purse. Two witnesses chased the suspect and were able to grab him and get the woman's purse back with all of its contents. But the suspect was able to get away and remains at large.

The suspect is described as a Hispanic male with a dark complexion about 5'10" with short hair possibly in his 20's.
