Mother Snatcher

An unemployed 18-year-old single mother has been arrested after snatching an elderly woman’s purse at a hypermarket in Kulaijaya.

The 59-year-old victim was walking to the carpark when the incident occurred at around 6pm on Thursday.

The teenager tried to escape but was caught by shoppers who came to the victim’s rescue.

Kulaijaya OCPD Supt Zulkefly Yahya said initial investigations revealed that the teenager was a first-time offender and a mother of one child.
