One known gang member has been accused of knocking a 74-year-old woman to the ground to steal her purse. According to reports, Andrae Briscoe has been arrested and charged with aggravated robbery of a person over 65. The purse snatching incident involving Briscoe and his 74-year-old female victim took place outside of a Chase Bank in February.
Additional reports indicate that one of the victim’s stolen credit cards was used to buy gas and withdraw money from an ATM just minutes after the attack. Police studied surveillance video from the bank and gas station to identify their suspect and recognized Briscoe. Reportedly, the victim of the attack is now paranoid as a result of the purse snatching and upon entering a grocery store or bank, she constantly looks around the venue. Briscoe who has a known affiliation with a gang, has reportedly not been cooperating in the investigation. Police are still looking for two accomplices of Briscoe one of whom drove the getaway car during the purse-snatching incident.
