Purse snatching suspects arrested

Good Samaritans helped Tulsa Police arrest two men stealing a woman's purse at gunpoint. One of the suspects works at the Tulsa County jail.

Police say 19-year-old Charles Wilson ran up to the victim's car at Woodland Hills Mall, pointed a gun at her, and reached across her to grab her purse out of the passenger's seat. Corrections Corporation of America, the company that runs the jail, tells the News on 6, Wilson is a corrections officer.

Tulsa Police say a 21 year old man was the get-away driver. A witness saw the robbery and got the suspects' tag number. An officer quickly spotted the car, and when the suspects tried to run, a city employee used his truck to block their path.
