Bag ripper nabbed

A bag snagger was arrested on July 20 after he violently struggled with his victim, ripping her dress in the process.

Cops said that the victim was nearing the corner of Gravesend Neck Road and Bedford Avenue at 3:20 pm when the 19-year-old suspect approached and latched onto the purse.

But the woman wouldn’t give the bag up — sparking a struggle that ended with the thief punching her in the face.

The thief made off with the bag after the mini-brawl, but was apprehended a short time later, charged with robbery, cops from the 61st Precinct said.
