Woman Throws Coffee On Publix Purse Snatcher

Hell hath no fury like a woman whose purse is being snatched outside Publix…

Boca Raton Police report that a woman was getting out of her car at the Publix at 1001 South Federal Highway on Monday morning when a man approached her and grabbed her purse. Before letting go, she took a cup of coffee and threw it on the man. The suspect was still able to get the purse and apparently knocked the woman to the ground. She is okay.
