A 60-year-old woman told Myrtle Beach police she was robbed at gunpoint Thursday afternoon in the parking lot of Coastal Grand Mall, according to a police report.
The victim told officers that about 1:15 p.m. Thursday she was at the rear of her car parked outside the mall when a man came up to her and told her to give him the bag, police said.
The victim thought someone was playing a prank on her until she turned around and saw the man was armed with a handgun, according to the report. The victim was ordered to get on the ground and the gunman took her purse and keys from inside the car.
The gunman then left in a nearby vehicle.
