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.

    Well they are going to make West State street nicer so that these robbers and thieves have a nice scenic drive home to the West side after they come to the East side to rob and pillage.

      It ain't about eastside westside northside or southside anymore bottom line is that Rockford's crime is and has been getting worse, we all need to come together as a community to fight off these thugs report everything we see

    the tax paying law abiding citizens are soon going to be considered criminals because of the need to protect themselves from this scum. I'd rather be tried by 12 than carried by 6 . these thugs need to start thinking twice about who they think they can take advantage of. recent events haven't phased them. so i guess we need to give their homies someone to tip a 40 to.

    I think we need to steer away from Really?'s drunk driving spin, because there is a more serious issue. Criminals are becoming more brazen. They're beginning to think that they can get away with anything...and unfortunately that's how it's getting played out. Just look, any time a thug is stopped by a police officer people come to that thug's aid and start the police are evil racist bit. Could the police do better, yes, of course, but going on countless racism rants helps nobody. It's getting to be where you can't be anywhere in Rockford after sun down. That's a shame, in the mayor's (this or the previous) quest to get in chummy with Chicago and accept their rejects, he's in turn drastically hurt Rockford's chances for positive growth and recognition. Nobody wants to visit/live in a town where thugs can stab you in a parking lot, shoot you in another (see Applebee's shooting on State last year), rob you as you're trying to get a pizza. At this rate maybe we'll be the setting for the next Grand Theft Auto game.

    @Ricky Which apartments at Mulford and State are you referring to? The expensive ones behind Shogun who rent to almost anybody, or the cheaper ones behind Mcdonalds who require a clean criminal background check to occur before allowing people to live there, or maybe some other apartments in that area?

    I was there. Chased the perp across mulford, saw him get in the get away car. fyi, initial descrip is inaccurate. After scanning (hundreds) of pics, vehicle was not a lexus. vehicle was a distance away, but looked pretty close to a mid 2002-2008 cadillac el dorado.

    If she was carrying this could have been prevented

    My repsonse to Really.. Are you kidding me? How can you even think that. I sure don't agree with drunk driving, but I have been taught two wrongs dont make a right. I have taught my children the same. Maybe that the problem today, don't pass the blame and take responsibilties for your own actions. Shame on you.

      You see, I live in that area. That bar over serves just about anyone. When you watch people stagger to their cars, you tend to get a little nervous about the patrons leaving at the late hour. I don't know that she was drunk.

      Funny how us taxpayors pay for everyone to stay on state aid and food stamps and yet they can afford to drive Caddy's and Lexus's...I dont have money for the damn gas.... Our systems really broke. How about a Hand up, Not out! Time for everybody to get back to work and pay back what they have taken advantage of.

    i sometimes have to work in the area around the apartments on strathmore. have seen countless drug deals. and its full of lowlifes. all i hear is yelling coming from the majority of the apartments. the parking lots are full all day which means most of them don't work. and the parking lots are filled with cars nicer than mine. when you live for free i guess you have to spend that drug money on something. just what this town needs is more dependents.
