LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A woman was arrested after she stole her friend's purse and then tried to run her over.

The victim went to the Market Zone, a convenience store on Market and 26th Street. When she got out of her car, she saw Shaqueen Sheppard, 25. The two women talked for a minute before the victim continued in the store to make a purchase.

The victim happened to turn around and saw Sheppard reach through the cracked window of her car and take her purse. The victim ran to Sheppard and a fight ensued. Sheppard attempted to flee the scene and tried to run over the victim with her car.

Someone passing by was able to pull the victim out of harm's way. Sheppard then tried to back out of the parking lot at a high rate of speed and struck an elderly person's car. She did not stop, but fled the scene.

Sheppard is being charged with robbery, wanton endangerment, leaving the scene of an accident, failure to own insurance and criminal mischief.
