NIAGARA FALLS A city woman said she was approached from behind by three men who demanded her purse as she walked home from the supermarket at 3 p.m. Tuesday.

The 62-year-old woman told police that she was robbed in the northeast corner of the Portage Road Tops Supermarket parking lot. She said one man grabbed her purse and dragged her along the gravel parking lot until the straps broke.

The three men, in their 20s or 30s, then ran east with the purse. All three were wearing black hoodies and jeans, the victim told police. She said she was a little sore from being dragged.

The purse contained $4, a bank card, a cellphone and personal papers, police reported.
