Purse grabber hit by car


January 20, 2017

A would-be robber is lucky to be alive after he reportedly snatched a purse in Half-Way Tree, St Andrew, yesterday, and was hit by a car while trying to escape.

THE WEEKEND STAR obtained a photo of the man seated in the roadway with curious onlookers standing around him.

He had only one foot of shoe on and held his head down seemingly in disbelief that he almost met his demise while trying to commit a robbery.

Our news team tried without success to get confirmation from the police if the man was taken to a doctor or if he was being held in custody.

A representative from the Constabulary Communications Unit (CCU) told THE WEEKEND STAR that they do not report on robberies unless it ends in a fatality.
