Police: Purse-snatcher went to victim's home, assaulted son, drove her SUV through garage door

Police in New Jersey are searching for a brazen purse-snatcher who showed up at the victim's home and crashed her SUV through her garage door.

Somerset County officials tell NJ.com (http://bit.ly/1p6H1lj ) the Franklin Township woman's purse was stolen Friday evening. A few hours later, police say her son went out of the garage and was confronted by a man matching the description of the purse-snatcher.

Authorities say the thief assaulted the son and began to flee on a bike but returned to kick in a garage door panel and get into the SUV. That's when the man backed the SUV through the still-closed garage door and drove off, but not without first retrieving his bike.

Anyone with information on the case is asked to contact Franklin Township police.
