The victim, her mother and a store clerk fought with the suspect. Police say the suspect then hit the store clerk over the head before running with the woman's wallet.
Police arrested the suspect a short time later at a nearby apartment complex. He was booked for aggravated battery.
The store clerk was not seriously injured.
