A woman had a harrowing experience at the Target shopping center in Edgewood over the weekend.

According to Atlanta Police reports, on July 5 around noon, the victim was leaving her black Mercedes Benz in the lower deck of the Target parking garage “and stepped out of the car to go into the store.”

“She stated that as she walked to the rear of her vehicle a black male wearing a green shirt punched her in the head and she fell on the ground,” the police report says. “She advised that the male took her purse and car keys and then stated ‘stay on the ground or I will f*&%ing kill you.'”

She told police she did what the man said. She said the man got in her car, put the vehicle in reverse and she had to roll away to avoid being run over, according to the report.

Zone 6 officers canvassed the area and police issued a bulletin, according to the report. The victim was transported to Piedmont Hospital for her injuries. Police haven’t been able to obtain security footage of the incident.
