Metro Police are searching for the person who attacked a female shopper as she was walking to her car outside a west Nashville Target store Tuesday night.
The 46-year-old victim was talking to friends at 8 p.m. when the suspect approached her, stabbed her in the back without provocation, and fled with her purse in a late '90s or early 2000 model dark blue Ford Mustang occupied by at least one other person, police said.
The victim was taken to St. Thomas hospital. Her injuries are non-lifethreatening, police said.
Police describe the suspect as a clean-cut, light-skinned black male in his 20s or early 30s. He is about 5-foot-10 inches tall who weighs about 160 pounds.
Surveillance video released Wednesday from the parking lot at the White Bridge Road store shows the suspect’s car and people running toward the store for help.
Anyone who recognizes the suspect or can identify the suspect vehicle is encouraged to call West Precinct detectives at 862-7385 or Crime Stoppers at 74-CRIME.
