SOUTH SALT LAKE, Utah — A 75-year-old woman ran after a man who stole her purse, got it back and gave him a tongue-lashing — and $3.
Betty Horton said the man apologized to her and said he was broke.
"I said, 'Why didn't you just ask me for some change? I would have helped you. I would have gladly given it to you,'" Horton said.
Horton said she put money in his hand and told him, "Now get the heck out of here." Police arrived, but the thief — whom authorities described as a 40-year-old man — was gone.
"Seventy-five years old and I can still take care of myself," Horton said.
