Date:

A shocking video from Southern California shows the moment a woman was dragged to the ground by a man who tried to snatch her purse.

The incident happened Monday afternoon in the Hacienda Heights neighborhood of Los Angeles when a man grabbed the victim’s bag and began shooting.

The video shows the man violently dragging the woman several feet in a parking lot outside a Bank of America as passers-by rush to help the woman.

“It’s scary to see this,” said local resident Jose Rafoya. “Maybe it’s your aunt, your grandmother. I come here with my wife, my little boy and you never know.

According to police, the woman suffered only minor injuries in the incident. The unidentified suspect managed to flee and was not arrested.

The sickening robbery happened at the corner of Azusa Avenue and Pepper Brook Way around 11:30 a.m. Monday, police said.

The woman is dragged for at least five seconds on camera and an unknown length off camera before the thief is finally able to grab the woman’s bag.

At one point, while the woman is still holding her purse, the man pulls so hard that the woman is lifted off the ground.

The victim’s head hits the hard pavement as the suspect continues to fire.

The video shows two men rushing to help the woman and chase the suspect who is caught fleeing in the opposite direction after stealing the purse.

As a man quickly runs after the suspect, a third person enters the frame and stays behind to check on the woman who is still lying on the ground.

The suspect managed to escape with the woman’s purse.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department told local media it was using the video in hopes of locating the attacker.
