STOCKTON (CBS13) — An elderly woman was robbed and thrown to the ground at a Stockton shopping mall by a man intent on getting away with it, but that’s not where the story ends. Good Samaritans, including a UPS driver, saw the incident, stepped in, and chased the man down so police could arrest him.

An eyewitness said the 84-year-old woman was walking in a shopping area on her way to get her nails done when the suspect came from behind and grabbed her purse. The force of being pulled threw her to the ground and caused her to hit her head on the concrete.

Police said the suspect is 30-year-old Brandon Murray. He’s facing multiple charges for robbery, elder abuse, and resisting arrest. Mims said she’s glad she was there to comfort the victim.
