Caught on Tape: Elderly Woman Dragged Behind SUV as Purse Thieves Speed Off

Video

A purse-snatching incident left a 78-year-old woman hospitalized Wednesday after two young purse-snatchers tried to make a getaway in their SUV.  After the thieves made off with her purse, the elderly woman was admitted to the hospital with a serious head injury and a broken ankle.

The young thieves seem to be targeting helpless victims, police say, noting that the pair stole a purse from a woman in a wheelchair just 45 minutes earlier.
