Democratic Candidate for 10th Congressional District Chases Down and Literally Captures a Purse Snatcher on Sunday in Falmouth
Keating was having breakfast with his wife at the Colony Fare restaurant in Falmouth, when a man overturned a stool, grabbed a woman’s purse and ran out of the restaurant.
A number of diners, including Keating ran after the man. The suspect, Christopher Jones, 29, dropped the purse and continued running, but Keating, 59, and another man continued after him, tackled him and held him until police arrived.
It turns out the purse contained thousands in cash to pay for their daughter’s wedding. The grateful family paid for Keating’s breakfast.
