MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

A Shelby County teacher has been out of school for two days after she said she was robbed and beaten outside her home in the Cooper Young area.

Police said the incident happened Monday in the 900 block of Philadelphia Street.

The teacher said three men walked up and began beating her in the head as she walked up her driveway.

She said she was knocked to the ground before the robbers took off with her purse.

"It was like fight or flight, trying to run away, but then they were punching me and threw me to the ground," she said.

The teacher said the three men ran away after her neighbor came outside and scared them. 

No arrests have been made in this case.
