He didn’t get far. 

In the video, the woman, sans shoes, appears to take off after the man who had reportedly ripped the purse from her hands at the Pimpama Tavern on the Gold Coast. 

It happened around 8:30 p.m. on Jan. 19, according to the timestamp on the video. 

After making it only half a block away from the pub, the elderly woman caught up to the alleged thief, grabbed his shoulders and threw him to the ground.
