COBB COUNTY, Ga. - A woman is in fear after she says a man pistol-whipped and robbed her outside a shopping center in Cobb County.
The victim doesn't want to be identified because her attacker remains on the run.
Cobb County Police responded to the attack on the East-West Connector in Austell just before 4 p.m. Saturday.
The woman says her mom walked inside a clothing store. And shortly after, a man got inside her car and attacked her before stealing her purse.

"It happened so fast I couldn't even think," she said. "He opened the car door sat down and said, 'drive.'"
The woman said she refused to move the car and hand over money. At that point, she told Fox 5 the man beat her with his pistol, hitting her arms, head and shoulders.
Cobb County Police is investigating the situation. A manager of Catherine's told FOX 5 she doubts surveillance video captured the crime.
