HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -

A Harrisburg woman escaped a Saturday robbery attempt unharmed and without losing any of her belongings, police said. 

Police said the woman was walking from her car to her home on the 1900 block of Green Street in Harrisburg at 10:04 p.m. when a man approached her and pointed a handgun at her. He demanded that she put her purse down and she did. But, when the man reached for the bag, the woman lunged at him and he ran off.
