Thief Punches Mom, Steals Purse, Finds Out What Her Daughter Does
A family were vacationing in New Orleans when a career criminal unexpectedly punched the 47-year-old family matriarch in the face and took off with her purse. The woman had to be hospitalized for a dislocated jaw. Her 18-year-old daughter, a trained weightlifter, chased after the mugger and took him down after a struggle. The man was later identified as 36-year-old Augustus Taylor, a career criminal who was booked on one count of purse snatching and two counts of simple battery. He has pleaded guilty multiple times in the past to battery charges, including domestic abuse battery, simple battery, and aggravated battery. Masina Tupea's quick thinking and impressive weightlifting skills saved the day, and she was hailed as a hero. Unfortunately, the vacation did not go as planned, but Masina has worn her black eye as a badge of honor and hopes to help others be more vigilant about the dangers around them.
