Police Catch Suspected Purse Snatcher

by Ramonica R. Jones

Three women were mugged Wednesday morning in Lufkin after they gave a ride to a pair of purse snatchers. Police arrested Quentin Holman after chasing him for 20 minutes. He's charged with aggravated robbery.  

Authorities said Holman and another man approached the women as they were leaving the M.B. store and asked for a ride. Holman reportedly pulled out a handgun and demanded money from the women.

He and his alleged accomplice took a purse and wallet from two of the victims and ran away. Neither of those items have been found. The handgun is also missing.

An arrest warrant has been issued for the second suspect.
