OKEECHOBEE, Fla. -- Police are searching for the man who stole a woman's purse and then ran over her with a car.

Security footage from inside an Okeechobee McDonald's shows a man approaching the woman from behind. He reaches over her right shoulder and grabs her purse.

The man then runs out the door and into a waiting car, with the woman chasing after him.

She opens the driver side door, but the suspect backs up. He then began dragging her, knocking her to the ground, and running over her.
