On Tuesday November 22, a 22-year-old mother was holding her baby in the arms early in the evening when a woman tried to pull her handbag out in St. Croix.
She did not let the other woman snatch her handbag, but in defending herself the child fell. She then called for help. Luckily, the baby was not injured but got some scratches. He was taken to the hospital for treatment.
Passers-by intercepted the thief on that night and they called the police. She was provisionally indicted for attempted robbery on Wednesday November 23 before the Port Louis court.
