The Richland County Sheriff's Department is searching for two suspects they say robbed a 62-year-old woman and sprayed her in the face with mace.

Deputies say around 9:30 p.m. on Friday, September 7 officers responded to a robbery call at the Wal-mart parking lot in the 10000 block of Two Notch Road. 

According to sheriff's deputies, two suspects asked the 62-year-old woman for directions to Farrow Road. 

As the woman began to give directions, one of the suspects sprayed the victim in the face with mace causing her to fall to the ground.

Deputies say the suspects then grabbed the woman's purse and fled the scene.   

The victim was transported to Palmetto Health Baptist for non-life threatening injuries. 

Investigators are searching for two men captured on the store's video surveillance system. Deputies say they drove away in a grey or white Nissan or Hyundai Elantra.

If you have any information about this crime, you are urged to contact Crimestoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
