Enfield police are investigating a strong-arm robbery which occurred Wednesday night.
According to the report, a female victim was robbed of her pocketbook and pushed out of the vehicle.
In a statement Chief Chuck Hasty said around 8:30 officers responded to the intersection of East Franklin Street and Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue about a person lying in the street.
The officers located the victim, who Hasty said refused transport to a hospital, and learned the person had been robbed and assaulted.
Before the robbery and assault, the victim had been dropped off after getting into a disagreement with other people in the vehicle in which she was riding.
The victim then caught a ride with a person described as a Black male driving a dark-colored four-door vehicle.
During the ride the driver took the victim’s purse which contained cash and a financial card. He pushed the victim, who was treated for injuries by EMS, out of the vehicle.
The man was last seen driving north on Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue.
Anyone with information is encouraged to contact Captain Clayton Glover at 252-445-5122, Halifax County Crimestoppers at 252-583-4444 or through the P3 tips app.
