Oshkosh woman punched, had purse stolen overnight

by

OSHKOSH, WI (WTAQ) - Oshkosh police say a woman was mugged and had her purse stolen outside a bar overnight.

Police were called around 2:20 a.m. Thursday from a 29-year-old woman who was waiting for a cab in the back parking lot of Screwballs, 216 N. Main Street. She called to report she had been in a dispute with another woman inside the bar.

While on the phone, she told dispatchers "they're coming back," and dispatchers heard her yell "get off me."

The victim said her purse was taken. Police indicate she was also punched in the attack. 

The two women ran north on State Street after the robbery.

She told authorities that she first encountered the two women who stole her purse inside the bar, but did not know them.

The purse, which contained personal belongings and some money, was black and made of leather.

Anyone with information is asked to call Oshkosh police at (920) 236-5742. Anonymous tips can also be left with Winnebago County Wide Crime Stoppers at (920) 231-8477, online or by sending a text message with the keyword IGOTYA to 274637.
