(THUNDER BAY, ON) – Earlier today, just hours ago, an elderly woman had her purse yanked right the eff out of her hand.
The incident unfolded around 2:40 pm on Prince Arthur Street, located in the East End.
The purse snatcher lurked up behind the unsuspecting senior citizen and quickly, and deviously, ripped the woman’s purse out of her hand before he made a dash for it.
This behaviour is completely in line with an out of control drug addiction. People who execute these types of crimes are often deeply strung out on various types of drugs and are seeking more.
Thunder Bay Police are investigating the incident and are working hard to identify the perpetrator. Below is a second video that emerged showing the suspect fleeing through someone’s yard.
