Handbag saves NYC woman shot at point-blank range

Handbag saves NYC woman shot at point-blank range

New York - Police say a New York City woman shot at point-blank range during a robbery was saved from a bullet wound thanks to her handbag. The New York Police Department says a 52-year-old man ran up to his intended victim on a Brooklyn Street early on Wednesday morning and demanded her car keys. The Daily News reports that the 39-year-old woman fought back against the man. During the struggle, the man fired a round at point-blank range. Police say the bullet tore through the victim's handbag, wallet and clothes, but stopped short of actually hitting her body. The man then pistol-whipped the woman, took her keys and drove off in her vehicle. Police later found him nearby in the vehicle and arrested him on attempted murder charges. The victim was taken to a local hospital for treatment.
