(WLWT) An attempt to steal a woman's purse as she walked to work in downtown Cincinnati, Ohio Wednesday morning was caught on video.
Mary, who asked that her last name not be used, told police she was walking to her job at a law firm when two men approached her from behind.
One of the men then grabbed her around the neck.
"He had his hand on my throat so I couldn't speak and after a number of seconds, people were going in to work and that's when they ran off," Mary said.
