A 31-year-old woman from Kiryat Motzkin was robbed late Tuesday night by a motorcyclist who snatched her bag as she was walking on the street. The man apparently had been slowly trailing the woman before committing the robbery. According to reports, the woman struggled with the thief, but he nonetheless succeeded in riding off with her purse. Police were called to the scene, and immediately began a search of the area. The suspect was located a short while later and arrested. The woman was not hurt in the incident.
