Helicopter footage captured the terrifying moment a woman walking her dogs in LA was mugged by a murder suspect who was being chased by police.

The unnamed suspect was filmed yanking a blue purse from the frightened woman on Sunday, before trying to grab the door handle of a passing SUV in an attempted carjacking – only for the driver of that vehicle to speed off before they could come to any harm.  

The drama began when police were involved in a high speed car chase through West Los Angeles involving a murder suspect in a deadly shooting in Long Beach earlier that day.

Aerial footage from NBC Los Angeles captured the suspect lead officers on a high-speed pursuit chase, starting on the freeway before making its way into busy intersections where the suspect’s black Mercedes Benz ran multiple red lights, nearly getting into several accidents. 

Once the suspect reached a dead end he exited his vehicle and made a run for it, and he was seen running down a dark alley and hopping a fence.

The suspect’s high speed car chase ends in a dead end where he flees on foot before he is apprehended

While fleeing, the is seein suspect runs into a woman walking two dogs on a sidewalk and he immediately tackles her to the ground and the two tussle before he snatches what appears to be a blue purse and runs off, leaving her on the ground. 

As he crosses the street he comes across a silver SUV and appears to try and carjack the vehicle before it takes off and then he enters a nearby Starbucks where police pull up and the chase ends. 

After evacuating the coffee shop the suspect is taken out in handcuffs and moments later the woman who was attacked by the suspect walks up to police to retrieve her stolen purse.  

The fatal shooting and subsequent car chase comes as critics are blaming DA Gascon’s ‘soft’ policies for LA’s spike in violent crime.

Los Angeles has seen a 54 percent increase in murders since 2019, with spikes in street shootings and armed holdups also taking place.

Gascon, a 67-year-old former assistant chief of the Los Angeles Police Department, took over as district attorney in the heavily Democrat city in December 2020 and immediately embarked on a progressive justice reform agenda – eliminating the use of sentencing enhancements for gang membership, certain uses of guns and for prior convictions.

Since taking office, Gascon has refused to meet with prosecutors to explain the logic behind his policies, the union said.

He is now said to be reversing course amid growing fury and a fear he’ll face a recall like woke San Francisco DA Chesa Boudin, whose policies critics say prioritize the welfare of criminals over victims.

A recent poll showed that 68 per cent of San Francisco residents plan to recall Boudin in June, suggesting that his prosecutorial career is on borrowed time.  

Union Vice President Eric Siddall likened the DA to a failed experiment.

‘Over a year ago, Gascon began a massive social experiment by redirecting prosecutorial resources away from enforcing the law while simultaneously ignoring large portions of the penal code,’ Siddall said.

‘The result is an emboldened criminal element that knows the DA will not hold criminals accountable. This experiment needs to end.’

Meantime, an effort to recall him is underway – which recently saw a former LAPD chief who previously endorsed him rescind his support.

Amid growing frustration with the progressive prosecutor, more than 600 deputy district attorneys throughout LA County endorsed his recall almost two weeks ago during an Association of Deputy District Attorneys (ADDA) meeting.

The effort to oust Gascon from office started in December.

Last week, two senior prosecutors – Maria Ramirez and Victor Rodriguez – revealed they were suing their boss after they claim they were demoted for making complaints about his policies, according to Fox News.
