When you picture Los Angeles, you don’t picture people riding around on horses, unless maybe they’re filming a movie. Which makes this URBAN COWBOY HERO story even better.
A guy snatched a woman’s purse in the parking lot of a mall in Northridge, California on Friday night. (Northridge is a city in the San Fernando Valley in L.A. County.)
The woman started yelling for help. And it arrived in the form of a man on horseback, who was randomly riding his horse through the parking lot.
He and his horse took off after the purse snatcher and cornered him . . . so the guy dropped the purse and ran away. The man scooped up the purse, trotted back to the mall, and delivered it to the lil’ lady. Then, we assume, he rode off into the sunset.
The cops are trying to track down the thief.
