Purse drop

A thief ran off with a woman’s purse during a bungling robbery on July 14.

The victim told police she was walking past the corner of Glenwood Road and East 105th Street at 10:30 am when the suspect approached.

He took a swing at his victim, but didn’t connect, officials said. But luck cut in his favor — the woman dropped the bag during the ensuing struggle and he ran off with it.

Cops caught up with the thief on July 17, charging him with robbery, petit larceny and attempted assault.
