PEACHTREE CORNERS, Ga. (AP) - Police in Georgia are looking for a robbery suspect who dragged a woman behind a truck and then partially ran over her at an Atlanta-area hotel.

Gwinnett County police Cpl. Michele Pihera tells local media that the incident happened around 6 p.m. on Aug. 9 in the parking lot of the Atlanta Marriott Norcross Hotel in Peachtree Corners. The victim was walking back to the hotel from a nearby store when a blue Honda Ridgeline pulled alongside her.

Pihera says a black female got out of the vehicle and grabbed the victim’s purse. The victim fought back and was thrown to the ground. The suspect returned to the vehicle, and the victim was dragged.

Police have released surveillance video footage of the incident.

The case remains under investigation.
