ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- A Rockford woman thought someone was playing a joke on her early Sunday morning when she was robbed outside a local bar.

Police say a woman walked to her car in the parking lot at Oscar's Pub with a group of friends and the next thing she knew a man came up behind her and demanded her purse.

She thought someone was joking with her so she held on to her purse and ignored the man, but then he stabbed her in the back.

The man made off with her purse. The victim was taken to a local hospital for the stab wound, but has since been released.

Rockford Scanner reported the suspect drove away in a white Lexus.
