Police nabs two juvenile would-be purse-snatchers

Date Posted: 2003-03-28

Police arrested two high school boys after they attempted to snatch the purse of a 28-year-old woman early Wednesday morning in Okinawa City.

According to the police two high school boys aged 16 and 17 attacked the woman from behind on a dark street and tried to snatch her shoulder bag. However, the woman refused to let go while the boys dragged her on the street trying to get the bag. A local resident heard her shouts for help and went to investigate. Seeing the boys dragging the woman, he jumped on the boys and managed to wrestle them to the ground.

He then called the police with his cell phone. The police arrived within minutes and arrested the would-be robbers.

When questioned the boys reportedly told the police that they wanted to get money to play, and decided to rob someone. When they spotted the woman with a shoulder bag walking alone on a dark street they decided to rob her. However, they miscalculated the woman's determination to hold on to her bag. The woman suffered some minor bruises to her legs as the boys dragged her along the street.
