DOTHAN, Ala. (WTVY) Police are looking for the person who robbed a woman in broad daylight Tuesday morning as she headed into work.

The woman attacked as she was going to work her shift at Southeast Health.

According to authorities the woman was walking behind the parking deck near the emergency room and wearing earbuds.

That’s when a man grabbed her by the collar, pulled her down and showed her a handgun.

Then he grabbed her purse and ran into the wood line, but this attacker didn't get away without a trace.

"The incident was reported on video and we're currently watching that video now trying to round up some more leads," says Dothan Police Department’s Lieutenant Doug Magill

Investigators say they do have some leads and they are hoping to close this case quickly.
