VIDEO: Woman dragged down street by purse snatcher
NEW YORK (WABC) -- A woman was dragged down a Brooklyn sidewalk, all so a mugger could wrestle away her purse.
The 46-year-old victim wouldn't let go when the suspect tried to snatch her pocketbook.
He dragged her for several feet, scraping up her head and back.
It happened Tuesday night on 57th Street in Borough Park.
The suspect eventually managed to rip the bag out of the victim's arms and flee.
