Description

It’s a brutal attack, captured on surveillance video in the middle of the day. In the video, released by the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office, a 76 year old woman approaches the doors of a Publix on Glades Road back on June 13th at 5:30PM. Two men line up on either side of the door ready to strike. One of the men lunges as the woman, grabbing her purse. The woman, still holding on, is dragged to the ground as the suspects take off. The men only got away with a blue coupon pouch, as the woman was able to keep her purse. “I’ve been shopping here for years, and I don’t think it’s dangerous,” one shopper told us. “But you never know what could happen. You know, it could happen anywhere.” Phyllis Atwell says it’s a sign of the times.
