They chased after him. The three men had seen him snatch the purse from the older woman as she finished her business at the ATM.
He had made the first corner with no problem but had tripped over the curb as he round the second corning. Now limping, the three men were quickly gaining on him.
As he came around the third, he looked back over his shoulder. He never saw the large mirror being moved by the two workmen as they crossed the sidewalk.
He hit it at full force. He heard the sound of shattering glass and then darkness.
The purse snatcher was never seen again, and the fragments of the mirror were swept up and thrown away.
