A Frisco woman says she is thankful to be alive after a man put a gun to her head and stole her purse Friday.

The woman, who did not want to be identified, said the robbery happened in front of her daughter as they pulled into their apartment garage after grocery shopping.

On the 911 call, the woman tells the dispatcher what happened.

"I was just robbed at gunpoint," the victim told the operator when she called 911. "My daughter was standing outside, and the guy came up to me, and I was talking on the phone, and he put a gun to my head and said, 'Give me your purse now.'"

In the 911 call, the woman said the man tried to cover her eyes.

"He put his hands over my eyes and he goes, 'Give me your, give me your purse now.' And I went, 'What?'" she said. "And I turned to him, and he let his hands down, and I saw him perfectly."

The woman told NBC 5 she is a teacher and that pays attention to detail. Her description of the suspect helped police catch the man a few hundred yards away in a field.

"Blond hair, short blond hair, black jogging suit, black cap on -- I think he had a black gun -- short kind of a Magnum kind of thingamajigs, not an old-fashioned one -- like a semi-automatic or something," she said during the 911 call. "He was good-looking, young. I say he's maybe in his early 20s."

A few minutes later, she can be heard saying a prayer on the phone.

"Thank you, Jesus, that he didn't shoot me," she whispered. "That would have been it. Thank you, Jesus. Thank you, Jesus."

Police arrested 28-year-old Dallas Fisher in a nearby field. He faces one count of aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon.

The woman told NBC 5 that she is praying that Fisher sees the error of his ways.
