CAPE CORAL, Fla. (AP) - Police say a southwest Florida purse-snatcher got more than she bargained for when she was bitten by her intended victim.

A woman told police she was putting groceries in her car on Thursday when a woman asked her for a dollar. The victim says she went back into the grocery store with the woman and offered to buy her a bottle of water from the vending machine.

The News-Press of Fort Myers (https://newspr.es/1mMgoMB ) reports the younger woman tried to grab the woman’s purse, but a struggle ensued and the pair fell to the floor. That’s when the victim bit her attacker.

Police say the would-be thief ran to a waiting truck and fled.
