CAPE CORAL, Fla. - 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.
Police say the would-be thief ran to a waiting truck and fled.
