I’m still out of the office this week for the holidays so just a quick copy and paste here from an e-mailed press release I received this morning from Santa Fe police:

On October 10, 2010, a 25 year old female was placing her child in a car seat when her purse was taken from the passenger seat of her vehicle.  She attempted to recover her purse by reaching into the suspects vehicle.  The suspect in turn grabbed her arm and proceeded to drag her through parking lot of the Walmart located at 3251 Cerrillos Road.  She was dragged until she struck the metal car return which caused her to be freed from the grip of the assailant.

Santa Fe Police detectives arrested two men in connection with this crime.

  • Marcus Griffin, 24
  • Kyle Clark, 25

Charges include:

  • Aggravated battery with a deadly weapon
  • Aggravated burglary
  • Unlawful taking of a credit card
  • Fraudulent use of a credit card
  • Conspiracy to commit a felony to wit: burglary
  • False Imprisionment

Online jail records show each man is being held in liue of a $75,000 bond.

Here is a link to the story I wrote on Oct. 11 with grainy video surveillance of the incident as broadcast on KOB:

    these criminals will be punished to the fullest exstent of the law they not only dragged her through the parking lot but they did this all in front of her 2 yr old baby! Sick, if they are released they will do it again because they are Criminals… and they will never change, unless they turn to God and beg for forgivness. A close friend of mine knew this woman, she wasnt able to walk to months! Her daughter is in ‘play therepy’, she had to move out of the state because they made her so paranoid about living around these so called ‘men’ that they might do it again.. and all for what? Her purse? Her indentity? These guys are scum!
