Wilmington Woman's Purse Snatched

WILMINGTON -- Someone snatched the purse of a woman walking home near downtown Wilmington Saturday. It happened shortly after 2:00 p.m. on 7th and Red Cross Streets.

Police say a man approached the woman from behind, grabbed her bag and ran.

Authorities say she told her mother what happened, and the woman searched the neighborhood for the man. They say the woman's mother eventually caught up with the purse snatcher, but when she confronted him he drove away.
