Detectives interviewed the Victim who stated that she had just walked to her vehicle, that was parked on a parking lot at Kavanaugh and Walnut, and that her purse was draped across her neck. As she was entering her vehicle, she was approached by a black male who grabbed her purse causing her to be slung to the ground. She said the Suspect started dragging her across the ground by her purse towards an unknown vehicle that was waiting for him. She said that, as she was being dragged, her friend in another vehicle, rammed the Suspect vehicle with her car. The Suspect was able to get her purse and he jumped into the waiting vehicle. This friend stated that when she saw the Victim being dragged by her purse, she rammed the Suspect vehicle with her own vehicle in an attempt to keep the Suspects from fleeing.
