While Miss Loretta Brunner, daughter of H.C. Brunner, the hardware merchant at 910 Walnut street, was going to her home at 914 Euclid avenue yesterday evening, she was stopped by a young man at Tenth street and Brooklyn avenue, who demanded her pocketbook.
Miss Brunner refused and he grappled with her, endeavoring to snatch the pocketbook from her hand. Miss Brunner held on to it, however, and a man and several boys who happened to be near ran to her assistance.
The man ran and was pursued on Tenth street and Forest avenue, where he ran into the grasp of Officer Keenan. He gave his name as John Martin and said he lived at Thirteenth and Walnut streets. He is about 18 years of age.
