The older woman who was almost run over in a McDonald's parking lot after chasing the man who had snatched away her bag said she was praying for him while she was showing her wounds from the ordeal.

Charles Stratton is in jail with a fine of $ 40,000 on charges of an aggravated battery, major theft and theft after he has changed himself in relation to the 6 December incident involving Janice Allen, 76 said the Okeechobee Police Station Friday.

Stratton, 50, reported to authorities in another country and said he had stolen the purse to buy crack cocaine, police said.

But all he got was $ 4, according to Allen, who said that it was her daughter's bag and that she had hardly anything in it.

After her release from the hospital with injuries from the ordeal, Allen said she was not angry with Stratton.

I pray that his heart be soothed that he can find the Lord, whether he goes to prison or whatever happens to him, & # 39; said Allen.

Allen was dining with a friend at the McDonald's on 70 East in Okeechobee, Florida on December 6, when a man came after her and packed her purse.

& # 39; We always have a Happy Meal, which I have not met, & # 39; said Allen.

Surveillance cameras in the fast food restaurant captured the act on camera, including the moment Allen quickly took action and chased the thief, even though she did not have much to lose in the handbag, which was not even her own.

& # 39; My daughter, it was her bag, she said. "All I had was my phone, debit cards, and $ 4. He got nothing but $ 4, so it's amazing that somebody would do something like that. & # 39;

When Allen opened the door successfully, the man backed up, Allen was knocked over by the door and slid straight under with the front wheels of the car, barely missing her body as the man drove away.

Doctors diagnosed her with a concussion and she said she also had a drop of blood on her brain.
