Police are searching for the man they say ripped a purse away from a woman's neck in east-central Fresno.

It happened just before 6 p.m. at the landing at Francher Creek Apartments near Peach and Highway 180. Investigators say the woman was walking her four-year-old in a stroller when she was approached by two men.

One placed a gun to her head while the other grabbed her from behind. That's when one of the suspects began yanking on the purse around the woman's neck eventually breaking the strap before running away with it.

The woman sustained a large welt to her neck and a small cut to her arm but is expected to be okay.
