An ASU student who was robbed and run over early Wednesday in Tempe has died of injuries she received in the incident.

Police said Kyleigh Ann Sousa, 21, was approached Wednesday by a heavyset man in a newer model silver Chrysler 300 who 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.

Anyone with any additional information is asked to call Tempe police at (480)350-8311 or Silent Witness at (480) 948-6377.
