MINEOLA (WABC) -- A woman waiting for a train chased and fought a purse snatcher who tried to run off with her belongings.
"I caught up with him at the staircase where you get off the platform. He pushed me so I fell down the stairs. So he got a little lead on me," she explained.
She fell on her hands and knees, suffering minor cuts and bruises, but she wasn't done yet.
The victim got back up and started chasing the bad guy again.
"I saw him go around this building to the left and something told me to go around the right and try to catch him on the opposite side. And that's what I did. He had no choice but to run into an alley," she said.
I don't recommend you doing this, ladies, but this gal knew what she was dealing with; a cowardly little piece of shit.
She cornered him in the alley behind 80 Main Street and pushed him against a car.
She grabbed him by his jacket, but the purse snatching bandit managed to wiggle out of the jacket.
He left it and the purse behind as he took off running again.
The victim ended her chase and called police.
Seems some moron attacked her when she was in college and she took a self-defense course, much to the chagrin of the moron who attacked her today.
