A man attacked and robbed an Aberdeen woman on a school playground in Belcamp on Tuesday, the Harford County Sheriff's Office reported.

The victim, 28, of the 600 block of South Philadelphia Boulevard, told police at 8:38 p.m. she was at the playground at Church Creek Elementary School, in the 4000 block of Church Creek Road, with her son when she got into an argument with the suspect.

He then took her purse and ran off.

She was treated by Abingdon Volunteer Fire Company and released.
