Woman leaps on thief's car after gas station theft
A woman admits she probably made the wrong choice to go after a man who had stolen her purse from her SUV at a South Florida gas station.
Luckily, she's relatively healthy after an altercation that saw her jumping onto the crook's car as it was speeding away.
Security video from the Mobil gas station at 3991 Stirling Road in Dania Beach shows the thief scoping out the woman's car while she was pumping gas on Saturday afternoon.
The man opens the door to her vehicle and swipes her purse.
As he walks away, the woman, identified as Janelle Della-Libera, gives chase and jumps onto the hood of his car as he attempts to leave the station.
Pounding the man with her wallet, she continues to attack even after he attempts to close the door on her arm.
With Della-Libera still covering the front windshield, the man drives away and the woman eventually falls off.
As Della-Libera was on the ground, the man drove his car over her leg.
