(04/07/14) - A purse snatching, Sunday, ended with three people in custody, according to Michigan State Police.

Police say a man took a purse from a 70-year-old Flint woman as she left church, in the 3100 block of Lewis, around 2:30 Sunday afternoon. She was thrown to the ground, but not seriously injured.

Police tracked the person to a home, not far away, in the 1500 block of Wyoming. They say he was hiding in the attic and fought with police, before being arrested. A woman and another man, at the home, were also arrested. All three are in the Flint City Lockup.

Two small children at the home were turned over to family members.
