A purse snatching victim got the chance to confront the suspect she says robbed her in north Houston.

"Yeah, this is him. That's him. Do you see what you did to me? If you needed money, you could have asked my for some; you didn't have to snatch my purse ," Annie Brown said.

She says she was paying for items at a Big Lots when the suspect grabbed her purse and dragged her out of the store. Brown held on to her purse for a while but eventually let go.

Eyewitnesses took down the suspect's license plate and an officer caught him about ten minutes later.

"The officers was so sweet to help me and they did catch him, and I thank them for that," said Brown.

The suspect did apologize while sitting handcuffed in the back of a patrol car.
