Woman robbed after her vehicle stuck in the snow
  A woman whose vehicle became stranded in snow near Versailles early Friday morning was robbed by her would-be rescuer.
The Darke County Sheriff's office said the woman wasn't injured in the 8:10 a.m. incident along state Route 121, even though she struggled with the suspect before he took off with her purse.
The report said the woman, who was not identified, said her vehicle slid off the road and became stuck in a ditch near Oliver Road between Greenville and Versailles. The woman told deputies a man in a small, white pickup truck stopped to help. He reportedly entered her vehicle and began rifling through her console and personal belongings, she told deputies.
The man exited her vehicle with her purse and a struggle ensued. The purse strap broke and the suspect subsequently left with the purse.
The truck was last seen traveling northbound on state Route 121, the report said. The purse and some of its contents were recovered north of the scene lying along the roadway.
The suspect is described as a white man, approximately 5-feet, 8-inches tall, in his mid 20s. He was wearing a Carhart sock hat, the victim said.
Anyone with information regarding the robbery is asked to contact the sheriff's office at 937-548-2020.
