CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - A 66-year-old woman was attacked and her purse was stolen while she was loading groceries into her car outside a Kroger in North College Hill.

Police say Drakkar Harris, 19, pushed the victim into the backseat of her car, took the purse from the shopping cart and ran south on foot on the east side of 7132 Hamilton Ave around 2:30 p.m. today.

A North College Hill City employee alerted police after spotting Harris running in the rear of the North College City Center building on West Galbraith Road.

NCH with the aid of Colerain Township and Mount Healthy Police constrained the area in an effort to trap Harris.

Harris was captured in the rear of a condominium complex at 1544 West Galbraith Road.

Harris is also a person of interest in other recent similar robberies that have occurred in North College Hill.

Harris was charged with robbery and is likely to face additional charges in the future.

The victim was unharmed and all her property was recovered, with the exception of her iPhone 5S. Police believe the phone fell out of her purse while Harris ran away.
