According to radio traffic monitored on the Pro News 7 Scanner, shortly before 4PM a woman was run over while chasing a man who stole her purse out of her shopping cart at the Big Lots at I-40 and Grand.
I talked to witnesses on the scene who said the woman stood behind the suspect's car to keep him from leaving and he backed up and hit her. She was taken away in an ambulance bound for NWTH. We are waiting for a condition report and an official statement from APD.
The suspect was described as a Hispanic male, 5'5 tall 140 lbs No vehicle description was available at press time.
TIME: 4:59 PM
