Purse Snatcher Violently Drags Mother and Child Down San Jose Staircase
A man was arrested on May 11 after violently grabbing a woman’s purse in a stairwell in San Jose, California, on May 6, dragging her and her young daughter down the stairs while doing so, police said.
A San Jose Police Department investigation linked the suspect to other purse-snatch robberies and led them to identify Pablo Cabrera as the suspect in the footage.
“All of Cabrera’s victims were Asian females carrying expensive purses,” police said.
“Cabrera attacked victims from behind, grabbed their purse, and ran to his car.” Cabrera, who was on parole for burglary, was arrested at his home in San Jose and booked into Santa Clara County Jail, police said.
