HOUSTON -

An elderly woman was left shaken after a man walked up and grabbed her purse while she was eating at a fast food restaurant in southeast Houston.

It happened Tuesday afternoon at the McDonald’s on Old Spanish Trail and Scott.          

Rosebell Morehead said she was at a table eating when a man came by, grabbed her purse and took off.

Morehead said she didn’t have any money in her purse, but the crook took off with her prescriptions and important medical documents.
