Tempe police say a woman was robbed and run over early Wednesday near Arizona State University.

Police say the investigation revealed that 21-year-old ASU student Kyleigh Ann Sousa was approached by a heavyset man in a newer model silver Chrysler 300.

Police said the man grabbed the young woman's purse and attempted to drive away in the 200 block of East Apache Boulevard.

The woman held on to her purse and the suspect vehicle and was dragged a short distance prior to the suspect fleeing the scene.

The victim was transported to a local hospital and is currently in critical condition.

Anyone with any additional information is asked to call Tempe police or Silent Witness.
