Greenville police say a woman was robbed by a gunman who was hiding behind the dumpster where she works.
Police say the hold up happened behind the 252 Tobacco Mart at 3010 E. Tenth St. in Greenville, just after 10 p.m. Tuesday. That's when the owner of the store let the victim out the backdoor to where her car was parked. The owner reported hearing her scream, and re-opened the door to see a man running away. The owner chased after the man but lost track of him at Cedar Ln.
Greenville police say the woman says the man jumped out from behind the dumpster with a gun and stole her purse.
Police say they tried to track the suspect with a K-9, but they did not find the gunman.
