A man accused of a purse snatching in Niles, back in April, has been arrested.

Antoine Dallas,33, was taken into custody in Peru, late last week, for robbery and theft/use of a financial transaction device.

ABC 57 News reports Dallas is accused of robbing an 80-year-old woman outside of Methodist Church on Cedar Street and using the woman’s credit card.

The woman was knocked to the ground.

One of Dallas’s shoes fell off and was left at the scene. The Michigan State Police Crime Lab was able to grab DNA from the shoe, matching it to Dallas.

DNA evidence is something the criminal doesn’t think about when they plan out their crime. I’m glad it caught Mr. Dallas as he makes a stupid decision to harm an 80 year old victim.

I hope he gets treated like the punk he is good attacking an 80 year old lady.
