Officers in Florence arrested two men for robbery Thursday night.
Investigators said a woman was leaving a Walmart store after 10 p.m. Thursday when 21-year-old Christian Mitchell approached her and began to grab for her purse.
The woman said Mitchell pushed her to the ground, grabbed the purse, and got into a getaway car, which had been circling the parking lot with its lights off.
Police pulled the vehicle over a few miles away from the scene, on Florence Boulevard and recovered the stolen purse.
The driver of the car, 23-year-old Trevor Morrow, was arrested along with Mitchell. Morrow was out on bond for a previous case of employee theft.
