Grandma takes a bite out of crime

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - July 29, 2010

A Florida great-grandmother is taking a bite out of crime.

Police in Daytona Beach report Patricia Robertson bit a purse snatcher hard enough to draw blood.

The 73-year-old woman then was dragged several feet while hanging on to her attackers' truck.

Robertson told police a couple snatched her purse at a gas station.

She adds she doesn't know how she got the strength to fight back.

A witness saw the commotion, called 911 and followed the crooks.

Police made the bust and returned Robertson's purse.

She says she almost lost a tooth biting her attacker.
