She struggled with the man to try to keep her purse and ultimately was knocked to the ground. She believed she had been struck by a gun, according to Husic’s arrest citation.
The other male on the passenger side of the vehicle took Husic’s phone to make it look like Husic was also a victim, according to his arrest citation. Husic told the woman he would go to his brother’s house and call for help. He left in a Ford F-150.
