“It’s an intensive violation that you don’t think it’s going to happen to you,” Haffner told Mike Watkiss, reporter for the Phoenix independent station.
Haffner said she was pushing a shopping cart out of a Safeway grocery store when a man drove up behind her, reached out of his vehicle and grabbed her purse.
“He yanked hard enough where I fell, the cart fell,” said Haffner. “Everything went flying to the right and I screamed ‘get his license’ cause there were tons of people around me and he just sped off,”
Though no one got the license plate number off the man’s black Cadillac Escalade she said was covered in dirt. She did get a description of the suspect, describing him as a clean-cut white male in his 20s with brown hair.
