Purse stolen from van at church lot in Forsyth County



CUMMING, Ga. — A man was seen carrying a baseball bat, lurching between cars and smashing car windows, according to a Forsyth County Sheriff’s incident report.

On Sept. 3, a woman at First Redeemer Church, 2100 Peachtree Parkway, told deputies she was sitting outside the lounge area of the church and heard what sounded like glass shattering.

She looked out into the parking lot and saw a man reach into a van, take something out and take off.

She said she tried shouting at the man, but he was hard to see as he was crouching behind cars. The suspect ran toward a “white hatchback sort of car” and sped off toward Peachtree Parkway (Ga. 141).

Deputies said the van had its passenger side door window smashed. The owner of the van said she left her purse on the back seat.
