Woman screams, fights for her purse; two flee

Two would-be robbers were thwarted Sunday when a Baltimore woman screamed and fought the men for her purse, county police said.

Dawn Marleen Jenkins, 33, was not injured in the attack.

Jenkins told police she was walking down the alley in the 5200 block of Disney Ave. in Brooklyn Park, when she was approached from behind by two men. They tried to snatch her purse from around her neck, but the woman began screaming and fighting, police said.

The men, minus the purse, ran toward 6th Street, police said.
