A South Florida woman walking up to the front gate of her driveway was targeted by armed robbers and the crime was caught on camera.

Miami-Dade police released surveillance video Wednesday showing the frightening encounter outside a home near Northwest 175th Street and 57th Avenue.

A black 2002 Hyundai Sonata pulled up as the victim entered her driveway. The car stopped across the street and a man exited the passenger side and ran toward the victim demanding her purse.

The woman then handed over the purse and quickly walked away. The suspect ran and jumped back into the car and the thieves fled the scene.

The woman was not hurt.

Police are asking anyone with information to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
