NEW ALBANY, Ind. (WHAS11) -- A New Albany woman is recovering after she was robbed and attacked in the middle of the afternoon.

Donna Parris, 56, was on her way to work around 3:30 p.m. on Wednesday afternoon when she stopped at the BP gas station on East Spring Street.

"I went in bought me a couple of packs of cigarettes. [I] walked back to get in my car, and I got robbed before I could get into my car," Parris said.

Store surveillance shows two males standing outside the store for more than 10 minutes. Police believe the suspects were watching people until they found someone who appeared to be an easy target.

"One came from behind and one came from the front. The one that came from the front hit me upside the head. I fell to the ground and the other one kicked me," Parris said.

The males took her wallet and took of running, but she did get a look at the two. "They were just two young kids. They was about 16..17 years old," Parris said.

Captain Ken Fudge says the suspects age is very alarming, "that's why we hope we can get them caught so this doesn't escalate into more serious crimes."

Anyone one with information is asked to call 812-948-NAPD.
