    Del.icio.us | Digg | Print Story | E-Mail Story | Font Size Beaumont police have arrested two teenagers accused of knocking a 78 year old woman to the ground and stealing her purse in a grocery store parking lot, and officers credit a man who saw what happened and took action.

    It happened at about 3:30 p.m. Monday outside the Kroger store on Dowlen Road.

    Police say 17 year old Scott Derek Craigen, Junior and 18 year old Timothy Tomplait drove toward the woman, jumped out of their truck, knocked her to the ground and drove away with her purse. She was treated for minor injuries in the parking lot.

    A man saw the robbery and followed the suspects while calling 9-1-1.

    Thanks to the man, police found the truck with the teens inside.

    They were charged with aggravated robbery and taken to jail.
