Dallas Police Seek Two In Videotaped Purse Snatching

DALLAS (AP) - Police say they have identified and are seeking two suspects in a purse-snatching made famous nationwide by a security video of the crime.

A Dallas police statement issued Tuesday says aggravated robbery warrants have been issued for 19-year-old Javier Duenas and 20-year-old Thelma Delao.

The security video of the March 29 theft shows suspects driving to a parking lot, getting out and approaching a woman who police say was going to work. The victim is seen getting something out of
the back seat of her car when she's attacked.

Police say the man had a knife, and the female suspect had a tire jack. The man drags the victim as she struggles to hold on to her bag.

Both suspects then drive away.
