Thief Steals Woman’s Purse - Hit With Instant Karma

One New York City teen learned the hard way that a life of crime is no kind of life. He got some instant karma after mugging a woman. As he ran away, he was mauled by some stray dogs in a park.

The 15-year-old's name has not been released, but he reportedly stalked the victim from the time the 56-year-old woman got off a bus. When she sat on a bench and placed her purse down on it, the teen ran by and snatched it away from her.

The young man ran into Springfield park. As he raced away from the scene of the crime, he caught the attention of a stray German Shephard and pit bull. The two dogs, probably acting on prey instinct, gave chase and eventually caught up with him.

The dogs bit the teen multiple times on the body and face. Police caught up, but unfortunately the dogs weren’t being treated as heroes. They were viciously attacking the child.

Police clubbed the dogs to try to get them off the teen. The dogs were sprayed with pepper spray and did back off temporarily, but as police tended to the youth, the dogs lingered and looked like they were going to attack him again. Animal Control finally showed up and tranquilized the dog with darts before hauling them away.

The teen was so terrified, he was actually happy to see the cops. He was rushed to the hospital to have his injuries treated, then he was arrested and charged with petty larceny as a juvenile offender.

The initial victim of the mugging got her purse back and has declined to comment about the incident.

The dogs have been placed in the care of Animal Care Centers of NYC, and their fate is unclear at this point. But locals see the dogs as doing a good job. Muggings are a common problem in the area.

“People get robbed there all the time,” said local. “I hope they bit him in the ass.”
