Good Samaritans track down man accused of stealing purse


 MANCHESTER— When police Officer Derek Feather responded to a report of a possible robbery just after 8:30 Wednesday night, he found an Epping man seated on the sidewalk in front of 990 Elm St., with several people standing guard.

Feather reported that a 36-year-old woman said she was walking north on Elm Street with her boyfriend when a group of people approached and asked for money.


She said a man in the group ripped her purse from her hand and fled south on Elm Street.


Several people heard her scream and grabbed Steven Judkins, 34, of 54 Pleasant St., Epping.


After speaking with the woman and others, including Judkins, Feather arrested Judkins and charged him with felony unarmed robbery.
