CLAYMONT, Del. (AP) - Delaware State Police say a 69-year-old woman chased a man who had stolen her purse in Claymont.

It happened shortly after 6 p.m. Tuesday at the Super Fresh on Philadelphia Pike. Troopers say the woman was putting groceries in her car when a man got out of a pickup truck near her.

Police say the man grabbed her purse out of the shopping cart. The woman held onto the purse and struggled with the robber, authorities say, but the man wrested the purse from her.

Troopers say the robber fled to the truck, but the woman ran after him and grabbed her purse. The robber again was able to get the purse from the woman, and drove off.

The woman was not hurt.
