SYCAMORE TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) -

A suspect has been arrested for a purse snatching that left a woman injured.

Just before 5:30 p.m. on Feb. 5, a 58-year-old woman was about to enter the Walgreen's on E. Galbraith Road when a male subject ran towards her, knocked her to the ground, grabbed her purse and fled on foot.

The suspect has been identified as Gregory Walker, 22. He is being held at the Hamilton County Justice Center on one count of robbery. His bond was set at $10,000 during an arraignment on Thursday morning.

The victim was taken to Jewish Hospital, where she was treated and released.
