Good Samaritan confronts purse snatcher

November 19, 2010

A woman who had her purse snatched outside a Walgreen’s store Friday morning in Beech Grove got it back when a Good Samaritan chased down the thief. The woman was on her way out of the store when a man grabbed her purse and ran to a van across the street. The woman yelled and sounded her car’s alarm, getting the attention of a Marsh Supermarkets employee who chased after the suspect, causing him to drop the purse. The snatcher and another man in the van got away.
