Joshua Minkins

A woman reported being robbed at gunpoint as she walked from her vehicle to her home in the 300 block of East Hunnicutt about 12:20 p.m. Monday.

She told police a man walked up, pointed a handgun at her and demanded her purse. Baytown police spokesman Lt. Steve Dorris said the woman initially refused to hand her purse over, at which time the man hit her in the face with the handgun and took the purse.
