Akron police say a 30-year-old woman was robbed while stopped at a traffic light early Wednesday morning on the city's west side.
Captain Dan Zampelli says it happened in the 700 block of Edgewood Avenue shortly after 1:30 a.m.
The woman told police that she was stopped at a traffic light in the 700 block of Edgewood Avenue where a man stood in front of her car and told her that she had a flat tire.
When the woman stepped out of her car to check the flat tire, the man grabbed her purse and fled the scene. A description of the suspect was not available.
