A boy was arrested in connection with a purse snatching after a resident spotted him and an accomplice jumping over fences and running through backyards in San Leandro, police said today. The boys were spotted walking through the resident’s front yard on Sunnyside Drive and into a neighboring yard shortly after noon, Lt. Troy Young said.
The resident heard one of the boys say “We have to hurry up and get out of San Leandro.” When police officers spotted the boys near Durant and Beverly avenues, the boys ran away. The officers were able to catch one of them, who was found to have a bag containing items belonging to a woman, Young said. Police now believe that the boys stole the bag from a woman they had spotted on AC Transit.
