The woman was unloading groceries at her home right next to Briggs Nursery, her family’s business on Route 152, about 3 p.m.

Her husband was just 20 feet away when he says the suspect went up to his wife with a gun. He says she is nervous and shaken. “I just drove in when it all happened,” he said. “I watched him drive out.”

Police said the suspect also had a knife in his hand.

The victim was not hurt but the suspect got away with her SUV, abandoning the vehicle a few miles away in front of Bishop Feehan High School. Police later found the car, which was partially on fire.
