The woman — who was an employee at the mall — was walking toward Southwest Hall Boulevard through a parking lot at about 9:10 p.m., March 4, near the Walls Fargo Bank branch, 9200 S.W. Washington Square Road, when a man came up from behind and hit her in the head with a blunt object. The woman fell to the ground and the man ran off with the woman’s purse.
