SOUTHAVEN, MS (WMC) -

Four people attacked a woman in Southaven and tried to steal her purse.

The woman said she was getting into her car when three men and a woman drove up to her, reached out a window, grabbed her purse, and tried to drive off.

The woman refused to let go of her purse, so one of the passengers reached out and punched her in the head.
