NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Crime Stoppers needs the public's help solving a violent robbery in East Nashville.

A woman attacked another woman and stole her purse.

Metro police said a group of men helped the suspect get away.

Police have seen the suspects because they were caught on tape.

The robbery happened around 3:30 a.m. May 10 in the parking lot behind the Three Crow Bar. The bar is on Woodland Street in East Nashville.

Police said a woman and two to three men approached a female customer and struck up a conversation.

"During the conversation the female in the bunch, for reasons unknown, punched one of the female victims and took her purse," said Metro detective Bill Stewart.

The men apparently told the victim they didn't know the suspect. However, a short time later, witnesses saw the same men get into a gray, early 90's Lincoln Continental.

Then, they picked up the suspect.

"The two individuals or three individuals that were with her that didn't take part in this. She may have gotten into some trouble and they didn't have anything to do with it," he said.

A witness described the robber as a white female. She's about 5 feet one inch tall and weighs about 100 pounds.

She had a pierced left eyebrow and a tribal tattoo on her right arm that ran up her arm to her neck.

She was also wearing a pink shirt and blue jeans.

Police found video from a surveillance camera at a nearby market that shows the suspect with the men.

Police hope someone will recognize them.

"All these individuals are described as being in their 20's, but the female is the one who actually struck the victim and actually took the purse," Stewart said.

If anyone knows the people shown in the surveillance video, they might be able to help police solve the robbery behind the Three Crow Bar in East Nashville. Crime Stoppers will pay up to $1,000 for clues in this case.

The phone number is 74-CRIME and callers will remain anonymous.
