ST. CLOUD (KNSI) - St. Cloud police are searching for a suspect after a woman was robbed of her purse at gunpoint on Christmas day.

Police Lieutenant Jeff Oxton says officers were called to a robbery complaint from the CVS Pharmacy parking lot at 2420 Division Street on Wednesday around 5:30 p.m.

According to the victim, the suspect approached her while she was walking to her vehicle, displayed a handgun and demanded she give him her purse. He then reportedly ran east out of the parking lot.

The victim was not injured during the incident.

When officers arrived, they set up a perimeter in the 2200 block of Division Street, and the area of 24th Avenue south and 1st street South.

The victim's purse was found, though police say all valuable items had been removed.

The suspect was not located. 

He's described as a white male, between the ages of 25-30 years old, about 5 foot 9 inches with a thin build, a dark goatee, dressed in a black hooded sweatshirt and dark blue jeans.

The investigation into the incident is active - anyone with information is asked to call the St. Cloud Police department or Tri-County Crime Stoppers.
