Women hogtie purse snatcher at gas station


Surveillance video shows the man asking a customer at a Cleveland gas station for a light. Then he tries to steal her purse, but the woman fought back. Then station employees joined in.

"I was sitting on his head. He was saying, 'Please, I can't breathe, I can't breathe.' I said, 'Well, you should have thought about that before you tried to rob that lady,'" said Lexanna Sullivan, a gas station employee.

It wasn't over there. The station owner supplied yellow caution tape as well as a telephone cord, and hogtied the man.

Police were going to taze the man, but realized the women had things under control.
