(WMC) - Jennifer Reed will never forget the day a man ripped her purse off her arm at her apartment complex, Hickory Farm, as she walked with her 4-year-old son through a breezeway just before noon.
"It was horrifying to be honest. I didn't know what was going on," she said.
Reed started yelling at the man. Her husband, who was nearby, heard her.
"I just heard her scream. I never heard my wife scream like that," Odell Reed said.
He started chasing the man.
"I just took off. I don't know where I got the adrenaline from, but I caught up with the guy," Reed said.
According to Reed, the man jumped in a Mercedes.
Police arrested Jarvis Livingston the next day.
Investigators say Livingston and Jordan Brown are responsible for several robberies and house break-ins in the area.
The whole thing makes Reed angry.
"He didn't care if my son was there. You know what I mean," he said. "It just kind of makes me feel nervous, because I don't know what's really going on in my neighborhood."
The Reeds and other neighbors are now on edge.
