ASU Girl Dragged By Car After Not Letting Go of Purse During Robbery Attempt

Categories: Crime Blotter

Tempe police need the public's help in tracking down a guy they say tried to steal the purse of an Arizona State University student and ended up dragging her with his car as she clung to the handbag.

About 2 a.m. today, Tempe police responded to a call that a female had been run over near the International House of Pancakes on Apache Boulevard in Tempe.

Police say the victim, 21-year-old Kyleigh Ann Sousa, was approached by a heavy-set Hispanic male in a newer model, silver Chrysler 300.

The suspect, police say, grabbed the girl's purse and tried to drive away.

One problem: Sousa didn't let go.

Sousa was dragged what police are calling "a short distance" before the suspect fled. She was taken to a nearby hospital where she is in critical condition.

We called Tempe police Sergeant Steve Carbajal to find out why the hell the lady didn't just ditch the purse, but he hasn't gotten back to us yet.

To help Tempe police apprehend the culprit call 480-350-8311.

Journalists are rock hard dumb. 9999 out of 10,000 women do not have the grip strength to dragged by holding on to something.

....the purse was obviously caught around wrist or otherwise.

No wonder 99 out of 100 journalists vote democrat. They are ignorant bast ards.
