PD: Man steals purse after pushing woman’s car off ice, asking for ride
MADISON, Wis. — A man who pushed a woman’s car off ice Monday night stole her purse after asking for a ride, according to a release.
The 37-year-old woman had gotten her car stuck on an ice-covered parking lot just before 11 p.m. in the 6500 block of Raymond Road when a stranger offered to push her out to the street, officials said.
The man then asked for a ride, but after letting him into her car she quickly got a bad feeling and asked the man to get out, according to the release. When he went to get out of the car, he grabbed for the woman’s purse.
The two struggled for the purse for a short time, before the woman let it go, officials said. The man took the purse and ran.
