According to reports purse-snatching is at an all time high city to city and state to state. Walking down the street or in a mall in broad daylight has even become unsafe while carrying a purse in many areas. Not too long ago, a woman was drug all through the Galleria area by her purse in the middle of the day. I am not aware of her current condition at this time but from my understanding she did not lose her life. It is important for victims to understand that if your life is in danger, the purse no longer matters as much and it is best to allow authorities to handle the matter from that point on. Making it home alive to your loved ones is top priority. The desperation of criminals are rapidly rising against helpless women and children which should call for great concern in surrounding communities. Robbers usually act in a quick manner so it is often hard to see or suspect when the attack will be done.
Tip: Lock purses and valuable items in the trunk of your vehicle out of site of potential robbers.
This week a woman in Southwest Houston Texas was walking through another parking lot and was abruptly attacked right in broad daylight on camera. The suspect even violently assaulted the woman as she struggled to hold onto the strap of her purse. According to police, the purse-snatcher is still at large and there is a $5000 reward for any information leading to his capture. Check out the shocking video of the assault below:
