PALM SPRINGS, Ca. -

A woman was robbed at knifepoint Wednesday by a suspect currently at-large after she and a companion stopped on the side of the road to take pictures of the mountains surrounding Palm Springs, according to police.

The robbery happened at 2:55 p.m. at the intersection of Eastgate and Tramview roads, when a couple stopped at the intersection to take snapshots, police said.

A woman who stayed behind in the car was then approached by a man who ``stuck a knife up close to the victim'' and demanded her purse. After she gave up the purse, the suspect then ran from the scene, police said.

The suspect was described as a black male adult, about 18 to 25 years old, and wearing all dark clothing.
