108-pound woman thwarts would-be purse snatcher

Okay, so I must admit I am not much of a newspaper reader but when my hubby showed me this article it made me laugh:

A suspected would-be thief was arrested Monday after a woman whose purse he tried to steal chased him and held him down, Police said.

Taylor Kahus-Saccio, 22, was arrested on suspicion of two counts of theft at about 1:40 p.m. Monday at the Fry's Food store.

Police said Kahus-Saccio took a woman's purse from her shopping cart and ran off with it.

The woman then chased Kahus-Saccio and continued to do so after he dropped the purse on the ground, police said.

The 27-year-old woman, who was not identified but was described as 5-foot-1 and weighing 108 pounds, caught up to Kahus-Saccio, grabbed his back and held onto him until store management arrived to help.

Kahus-Saccio was arrested and sent to jail.

He had no prior criminal record, police said.

Doesn't this guy know, you never mess with a woman and her purse!  NEVER!!!
