MOUNT POCONO — US po­lice say an 81-year-old Penn­syl­va­nia woman chased down rob­bers who stole her purse, ram­ming their car with hers and leav­ing dam­age that helped of­fi­cers ap­pre­hend them.

The woman was sit­ting her car in her Mount Pocono drive­way on Tues­day when she was ap­proached by a man and woman. As she talked to them through an open win­dow, one grabbed her purse and they fled in a car.

Pocono Moun­tain Re­gional po­lice say the woman took off af­ter them and hit their car, but the duo drove off.

Of­fi­cers found their dam­aged car in a gro­cery store park­ing lot.

Thirty-four-year-old Wil­liam Hay­hurst and 30-year-old Erin Van­ma­tre were ar­rested and ar­raigned Wed­nes­day on rob­bery and other charges.

Po­lice say the sus­pects tar­geted the woman af­ter see­ing her with cash at a phar­macy.
