Purse grab

A woman was thrown to the ground and robbed of her purse as she walked through Midwood on April 25.

Cops were told that the victim was nearing the corner of East 19th Street and Avenue J at 10:16 am when the thief bowled into her, knocking her to the ground.

He then scooped up the purse and ran off with it.

Responding officers later arrested the suspect, identified as 20-year-old Guillermo Rosas, and charged him with robbery in the second degree.

Police said that the woman suffered some scrapes to her hands and knees and some bruises.
