A Duncannon woman ends up behind bars after she tried snatching another woman’s purse in an Applebee’s parking lot Saturday night.
Lower Paxton Township Police were called to the Applebee’s on 4401 Jonestown Road around 7:20PM for reports of a fight. When they arrived, police found that restaurant customers were detaining a woman for stealing another woman’s purse in the parking lot.
The victim told police that 22-year-old Meagan Bornman grabbed her purse as she was walking through the parking lot. She also says Bornman threatened to stab her if she didn’t give up the purse. The victim’s friend and a few other restaurant patrons detained Bornman until police got there.
Police arrested Bornman and found a knife and two hypodermic needles.
She is being charged with robbery, possession of instruments of crime and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Bornman is now in Dauphin County Prison.
