Suspects arrested in purse snatching

Two juveniles have been arrested in connection with a purse-snatching that occurred at Wal-Mart on March 3.

According to a North Augusta Public Safety incident report, the 70-year-old victim was walking out of Wal-Mart when one of the suspects came up behind her and took her purse. He and another suspect then ran behind the business.

The victim attempted to run after the suspects but fell, causing cuts to her right hand and right knee.

After an investigation, Public Safety arrested and charged 17-year-old Tyrone Lendell Miller, of the 1100 block of Austin Street, and an unidentified juvenile in connection with the case, according to the report.
