Knife-Wielding Pregnant Lady Sends Purse Snatcher To Hospital [Nice Deb]

This is the kind of story we all like to see.

A 21 year old pregnant woman was walking home from her job at Applebee's, on a dark Gilbert street, when she was confronted by a purse snatcher:

"There was a guy kind of hidden in the bushes," she said.

"It looked like he had something," the victim said.

Police said Del Hoyo ran towards her and asked for a cigarette.

"I pulled knife out and pulled the blade open," she told CBS 5 News.

"He asked me if I had a phone. I just kept walking," she said.

Moments later, officers said he grabbed her arm.

"I had my arm through my purse. He put his arm through the purse and he was pulling me while swinging at me with his other arm," she said.


That's when the slashing started. She slashed and slashed at him, and when he wouldn't let go, she slashed some more.

Needing the rent money in her purse, the woman said she wouldn't give up.

"I was in fear for my life and my child," she said.

Finally, the injured and bleeding twerp ran off to his car, followed by our knife wielding, pregnant heroine, who still had the presence of mind to get his license plate number before dialing 911.

She states in the video (you can see at the link):

"When the police took me to identify him, he was already in the ambulance, and they were pretty eager to get him to the hospital".

The man, Filemon Del Hoyo, 22, was transported to Scottsdale Osborne Hospital with severe lacerations.
