A robber stole a woman's purse early Monday while she was sitting in her car in a North Little Rock neighborhood, police said.

Officers responded just after 12:20 a.m. to a home in the 1700 block of Marion Street, according to a report from the city's Police Department.

The 38-year-old victim told authorities she was sitting outside the house in her car with the driver's door open, and when she set her purse in the passenger seat, she felt a person reach over her lap to grab it.

The report states the woman confronted the thief and intended to fight him for her handbag until he pointed a black handgun at her.

The individual, described as a shirtless male between 18 and 20 years old, fled on a silver bicycle with the woman's purse, which contained a wallet, debit cards, makeup and house keys, police said.

No suspect had been named, and no arrest had been made at the time of the report.
