ST. LOUIS (KPLR) - St. Louis police are looking for a purse snatching team near midtown that targeted a pregnant woman as she was pumping gas. Charvida King says a car creeped up next to her at the QuickTrip on Vandeventer.
A man ducked into her passenger door and grabbed her purse, then hopped back into the car which sped off.
This video, taken in Chicago, shows the technique, known as sliding.
It's been a problem in many major cities.
