It would’ve seemed that snatching purses and breaking and entering were crimes of the past. But one elderly woman fell victim to a purse snatching on Tuesday in South Daytona, Fl. And the crime did not go smoothly as the criminals thought it might because the elderly woman was determined to hold on to her purse and obviously, the valuables inside. Or she is just one tough woman who wasn’t going to be violated in this way. No way. No how.
According to CNN, the 78-year old woman is in critical condition after being approached by two young white women for “gas money” on her way into a store. She said after she went into her purse to give them money, they then snatched her purse and took off in their SUV. She would not let go. The terrible crime was caught on some sort of surveillance video for the parking lot. Check it out:
