On Thursday a woman was taken into custody and charged for an incident that occurred on February 8 in Irvine, when a woman walking toward a store had her purse snatched.
Approximately one week ago in the evening a woman parked her car in the lot of Bath and Body Works and walked through the parking lot toward the entrance of the store. Before she was able to make it to the door someone advanced upon her from behind and tried to grab the purse off of her shoulder.
The victim fought to keep her belongings and wrestled with the perpetrator until she fell to the ground. She reported that the woman stealing her purse then began kicking her in the forehead and upper body before taking the bag and driving away in a black sedan.
