LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Witnesses to a purse snatching outside a Louisville Kroger chased the suspect through the parking lot until police arrived, according to an arrest report.

The victim told police that she and her daughter had just gone by an ATM and then she let her daughter out at the Kroger at 3rd Street and New Cut Road around 3 p.m. Sunday. The victim said she was waiting for her daughter to come out of the Kroger when Dylan C. Rowe, 27, leaned into her open car window, shoved her from the driver's side to the passenger's side and stole her purse. 

Police patrolling through the Auburndale Shopping Center noticed Rowe running through the parking lot with a brown purse in his hand. Several people were chasing him. Police said Rowe confessed to the crime when they stopped him on 3rd Street at Shorewood Drive.

Rowe is charged with 1st degree robbery.
