VIDEO: Woman dragged by getaway car after purse snatched outside Publix in Tampa

(CNN) - Tampa police are looking for two people who snatched a woman's purse last week at a Publix grocery store.

Surveillance video from Sept. 20 shows a woman leave the store and waiting for the rain to stop.

However, a thief runs by, grabs her purse and jumps into a getaway car.

In seconds, the woman catches up with the car and is able to reach into the vehicle and get her purse back.

She scraped her knees and hurt her arm after being dragged for a few feet.

Police are hoping the video helps them capture the purse snatcher and the driver.
