Two citizens foiled a purse snatching in a parking lot near Annapolis Mall on Sunday afternoon, county police said.
Maria Lemos, 26, told police she was leaving work at the Wynham Gardens Hotel in the 100 block of Jennifer Road and was walking toward West Street when a man approached her, pushed her, grabbed her purse and ran behind the hotel.
Two people caught the man, took the purse and a cellular phone from him and let him go. They gave Ms. Lemos her purse and gave police the telephone, police said.
