HICKORY, N.C.-- When a woman had her purse snatched from her grasp, she decided to go after the man to get it back.

A 36-year-old went to Max’s Mexican Eatery in the 800 block of U.S. 70, SW, for lunch with friends at about 2:15 p.m. Thursday. They heard a man in the parking lot yelling at one of her friends, who vaguely recognized him so they walked over, according to the police report.

The woman and her friends talked with the man for a few minutes and as they turned to walk away, the man jerked the purse out of her hands and went toward Ninth Street, where a car was parked in the parking lot of the former Hannah’s Bar-B-Q and picked up the man and drove off, the report states.

The woman and her friends got in a car and followed him, calling 911 as they drove. They spotted the car at Second Avenue, NW, and U.S. 321, where the man threw the purse out the car window. The woman picked up her purse from the side of the road and found the cash had been taken.

Hickory police caught up with the car on Sandy Ford Road and River Road, and called the Catawba County Sheriff’s Office for backup, according to the police report. The man jumped out of the car at the intersection and fled on foot. Sheriff’s deputies caught him under the Sandy Ford bridge. The woman identified him as the man who took her purse.

That man, Randy Bivens, 30, of Icard, was charged with one count of felony common law robbery and one count of driving while license revoked. He was jailed under a $15,000 secured bond.
