Purse snatcher pulls mother and child down the stairs

A purse snatching suspect who police say targeted Asian women has been arrested after he was caught on camera stealing from a mother who was walking up a flight of stairs with her daughter in San Jose last week.

San Jose Police identified Pablo Cabrera as the man who "violently pulled" the purse from a female victim in the 1500 block of Tower Lanes on May 6. The victim was dragged down the steps along with her child. A surveillance video was able to capture the incident and Cabrera was arrested on Saturday, police said Tuesday.
