Robbery attempt on elderly woman in Virginia Beach

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WVEC) -- Police say someone tried to rob a Virginia Beach woman in her 80's.

Investigators believe the would-be robber followed the woman from the Lowe's on Holland Road to her home in the Timberlake neighborhood. Police say the victim was getting out of her car when the suspect -- described as a middle-aged woman -- came up and demanded the victim's purse.

There was a struggle, and the victim started honking her car horn.

The suspect fled in an older model, Lincoln, possibly tan, beige or gold.
