Handbag Loving Housewife Rides Down Purse Snatcher

Posted on: Oct 3

A feisty Malaysian housewife went to extremes on Wednesday when her handbag was snatched by a motorcycle-riding thief. But she wasn't giving up her prized posession so easily. She gave chase on her own motorbike!

Possibly inspired by Angelina Jolie's bike chase in Tomb Raider the determined 41-year old woman chased the bag snatcher for 100 meters. After driving the thief down she intentionally crashed her bike into his, causing them both to fall off. She then screamed for help, attracting passersbys who apprehended the man.

The robber was handed over to police, who believe he was also involved in other bag snatching cases around the Cukai area of Northeast Malaysia.

We all know a good handbag is a woman's best friend, but how many women would have the guts to do something like this? I know I'd have surrendered mine! This is one serious case of girl power! It reminds me of some of these great stories about angry women toting handbags!
