A woman shopping at Sam's Club on Northwestern Highway late Monday morning contacted police after a man took her purse and cell phone.
According to Farmington Hills Police, the woman told officers that she spotted a black vehicle with tinted windows driving through the parking lot as she arrived, and it gave her an uneasy feeling. Later, as she loaded her groceries into her car, a man approached her with his hand in his pocket, pointing at her as though he had a gun.
Police said the man asked for her purse and phone, and after she handed them over, the black vehicle pulled up. The man jumped inside, and the vehicle drove off. A passerby recorded the vehicle's license plate, and investigators plan to examine the store's surveillance tapes.
The woman said the man was black, 6-feet tall with a very thin build, and wearing all black clothing.
