A good Samaritan is credited with stopping a purse-snatching at a Wichita store.

It happened last night at Walmart, located at Pawnee and Broadway.

According to police, a 27-year-old woman was walking in the parking lot when a man approached and grabbed her purse. She tried to hang on to her purse, and was dragged several feet.

Another man who was nearby saw what was going on and tackled the suspect, forcing the purse from his hand. The suspect was able to get away, but was empty-handed. Police have not located him.

The woman was not injured.
