A Miami woman narrowly escapes serious injury as she tries to fight back against a purse snatcher.

The violent crime was captured on surveillance video at a gas station. The woman left her purse in her vehicle and went to see the clerk inside. When she came back, her window was smashed and her purse gone.

She saw the suspects bailing out of the gas station and lunged toward the car. She was knocked to the ground and nearly dragged away. She got up and called police.

The suspects are still on the loose.
