When the victim refused, the video shows the suspect opening the door, getting into the car through the driver's side, and forcibly taking the purse.  He then gets into a black 2006 Chevrolet Impala and takes off.

The suspect is described as a black man in his early 20s. He is about 5'8" tall with a slim build and an afro.
