MANATEE — A 20-year-old woman early this morning was mugged in the parking lot of her apartment complex, according to the Manatee County Sheriff's Office.
At 3:20 a.m., the woman was walking from her to her apartment in the Sanctuary Condos, 5400 26th St. W., when a man approached her from behind and grabbed her purse. The woman refused to let go and the man began pulling her towards a white car, possibly a Toyota, driven by a woman.
As they got to the car, the victim let go of her purse, and simultaneously her cell phone fell from her hand and into the car.
The suspects then fled in an unknown direction.
