Sheriff’s deputies say a 72-year-old Scottsville woman suffered a broken arm and cuts to her face during a purse snatching. It happened shortly after 8 p.m. Monday in the BJ's Wholesale Club parking lot in Henrietta.
Investigators say the victim, Eleanor Lyons, had just returned her cart and was walking back to her vehicle when someone ran up behind her and grabbed her purse from her hands. Deputies say Lyons tried to hold onto the purse but fell to the ground.
No one was arrested. Anyone with information is asked to call 911.
