A couple of Good Samaritans came to the aid of a robbery victim near the UK Campus overnight.

A woman was walking on Transylvania Park, when police say, a suspect came up behind her, pushed her to the ground, taking her purse and iPhone before running off.

The woman screamed and that's when two men came running out of their home. One of them helped the victim while the other ran after the suspect, according to police. He lost track of the suspect, but he did find the woman's purse that had been dropped.

Police are still looking for the suspect.
