A purse-snatching scheme has a Pittsford woman shaken after she was tag-teamed on a rural road in Rutland Town.
Police say the woman was driving down McKinley Avenue near Abbey Lane Tuesday afternoon when a car pulled out from a side street. She stopped to let the car go, and that's when she says a man jumped out from the bushes, opened her passenger door and stole her purse. Police believe he then jumped into the other vehicle and fled.
The victim, LaVerne Lesznik, says she's not worried about losing her items, but feels her personal safety was violated.
"It's like, how dare you? It's not about the stuff. I can get credit cards and license, jewelry, money back. It's not about that. It's about the fact that I was vulnerable without realizing I was vulnerable," Lesznik said.
There were no witnesses to the crime, but Lesznik describes the thieves as two thin, white men in their early 30s.
