The victim of a purse-snatching chased the culprits down, but in the ensuing struggle, she ended up losing a part of her tooth.

Police were called to the reported robbery at about 8:30 p.m. on Saturday evening, May 31, where the victim said that a group of two or three people had stolen her purse.

After chasing the thieves down, the victim managed to get her purse back, but during the confrontation she was punched in the face, which broke a tooth.

By the time officers arrived to Knowlton Drive, where the incident happened, the thieves had fled, and a search didn't turn them up any suspects.

However, investigation has led police to at least one suspect. They've now arrested a 13-year-old girl, who is to appear in court on July 29, charged with robbery.
