'He smashed the door and frame, he pulled out, walked into the store, came over here we had purses grabbed as many as he can, had rings, didn't touch them," said Elrod.
The purses the robber helped himself to, were found nearby, along with the stolen car, he is still on the run. Both businesses have been boarded up and secured.
