A 64-year-old woman was dragged through the parking lot of a Broward County gas station Friday after two men stole her purse and pinned her arm in their car door.
In a video released by the Davie Police Department, the woman can be seen pumping gas at a Shell station in Southwest Ranches when two men pull up in a car next to hers. One of the men gets out and smashes the woman’s window before reaching in and snatching her purse. When the woman realizes what has happened, she tries to chase after the car, but her arm is pinned in the car door. The driver accelerates, dragging the woman through the parking lot.
The woman told police she had $600 and an iPhone in her purse, WPLG Local 10 News reported. The woman suffered bruises, but was otherwise unharmed, according to Local 10.
Police are searching for the men who fled the 15991 Sheridan St. gas station in what they believe was a late model silver Chevrolet Malibu or similar car. They are urging anyone with information about the crime to contact the Davie Police Department at 943-693-8200.
