Having your purse snatched is a crime I would wish upon no-one, but the details of this one (& the contents of the purse) do validate that well-worn stereotype: the wealthy, young, numbed-out, Park Slope stroller-mom:
Purse in Stroller Heist
A crook stole a woman’s purse, with almost ten credit cards, her designer
eyeglasses and medication inside, from her son’s stroller on 11th Street on Aug.
The 35-year-old woman told police that her child walked away from the
stroller, which was parked between Seventh and Eighth avenues, at around 6:30
p.m. She went to get her son, leaving her purse in the stroller. Within two
minutes, someone stole her bag. The crook got away with seven credit cards, a
driver’s license, designer prescription eyeglasses and a prescription bottle of
painkillers. The woman cancelled her credit cards immediately. (PS Patch)
Pain-killers. Designer glasses. Seven ("almost ten"?) credit cards. Oh motherhood, your travails are many.
