ABILENE, Texas -

A woman was robbed Monday morning by a man with a gun in the parking lot of Men's Wearhouse on Catclaw Drive.

The robbery happened about 9 a.m.  The woman told police that a man approached her as she was exiting her car and started a conversation.  At the end of the conversation the man pulled out a gun and grabbed the woman's purse.  He then fled on foot.  The woman was not injured.

The purse was found a short time later near the business, minus a bank bag that carried cash.  The robber got away with an undisclosed amount of money.

Police are investigating whether this robbery was committed by the same person who robbed a woman of a bank bag on South Leggett on December 19.
