OKEECHOBEE, Fla. (WPEC) – An elderly woman almost ran into McDonalds' parking lot when she tried to confront the man who had robbed her only a few seconds earlier.
The male suspect approaches the victim sitting at a table with another woman. He leans over the victim's right shoulder from behind to pull her purse out of the seat.
The next video shows the man sprinting out of the restaurant and the victim follows him. He jumps into the driver's seat of his car, where someone is waiting, and shuts the door. When the victim opens his car door, the man drives backwards – almost he would have run with his car door over the woman and would have left her injured on the ground.
Warning: The following video may disturb some viewers.
The woman was taken to a local hospital where she was treated for her injuries. Her condition is unknown at this time.
Okeechobee police say they arrested Charles Alton Stratton Jr. in connection with the incident.
