A 62 year old woman wasn't letting go of her purse without a fight.
Last night at about 10:30 she walked into a bank at Barton and Gage. Upon leaving, she was followed by a male on a bike who was standing behind her at the ATM.
As the woman crossed Barton Street she was attacked from behind with the suspect grabbing her purse from a small buggy.
The victim, then grabbed the suspect's bike in an attempt to get her purse back; the struggle caused both to fall to the ground.
The suspect ran off with the purse, leaving his bike behind.
He was found soon after at a nearby coffee shop with the victim's purse in hand, and some crack cocaine.
43 year old Michael Grant was arrested and held for bail.
