The woman, identified as 65-year-old Marsha Johnson, was loading groceries into her car at about 7:45 p.m. Monday when a man driving a Honda Accord pulled into a nearby parking space at the Walmart on Industrial Boulevard in Covington, which is about 35 miles southeast of Atlanta.
Surveillance video showed the man watching Johnson as she put away her grocery cart and went back toward her vehicle.
As Johnson tried to get into her vehicle, the suspect walked behind her and tried to grab her purse, the video showed. At first, Johnson doesn't let go of her purse. The suspect pulls her to the ground, snatches the purse and jumped in his car.
“She ended up behind the car," said Capt. Craig Treadwell of the Covington Police Department. "He backed out, and when he pulled forward, she ended up back underneath the car. He couldn’t get the car all the way out, so he ended up being on top of the victim with the vehicle three or four times.”
