    The suspect fled in the black Nissan Rogue, which was found shortly after a few blocks away at 400 SE 23rd Ave.

    The woman's purse was missing and so was the money from the business that she was going to deposit at a bank.

    "We did locate the car a couple blocks away shortly thereafter, but the woman was nowhere to be found and of course the money and victim's purse is gone," said Keyla Concepcion, Broward Sheriff's spokeswoman.
