PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -

Two suspected males stole a woman's purse after punching her in the face.

On May 15, the victim was approached by two males when one of them tried to snatch her purse.

The 27-year-old victim resisted and the suspect proceeded to punch her twice in the face until her purse strap snapped. 

While the victim was fighting back, the suspect reportedly told the other male with him that he was going to "need the gun."

The suspects fled in a vehicle driven by a black female.

The suspected males then used one of the victim's stolen cards moments after the robbery.
