Cheap clutch

A purse-snatcher jumped a woman on S. Elliott Place on Oct. 21 and escaped into Fort Greene Park with her designer handbag.

The 34-year-old victim told cops that she was near DeKalb Avenue at 10:50 am when the robber yanked her bag off her shoulder and yelled, “I got you!” He fled into the nearby greenspace with $45.

Where: S. Elliott Place and DeKalb Avenue
