Would-Be Purse Thief Drags 88-Year-Old Woman With SUV



INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - Indianapolis police hope the public can help them with a frightening attack on an 88-year-old woman.

Today, IMPD shared surveillance video in the hope someone will see something that helps solve the crime.

The video shows the Kroger parking lot at 46th Street and Arlington Avenue, on Jan. 12. Alda Faulkner is seen walking toward the store at around 2 that afternoon.

First, you see her move over as if to avoid a station wagon turning near her. Police say there was a little conversation between Alda and whoever's in the car. Then, someone inside grabs her purse and starts to drive away.

But, Alda held on. She wound up being dragged a bit, and then fell to the ground. Police say the snow provided a little cushion for her.

This is seems to be a trend.  A few days ago we told you about a similar incident involving a 78-year-old in the San Diego area.
