A man who snatched a woman’s handbag from a car died after jumping off a bridge in Parktown, Johannesburg.
He smashed the window of a woman’s car and stole her handbag as she was stuck in rush-hour traffic yesterday on the M1 highway over Empire Road, next to Wits University, ER24 spokeswoman Vanessa Jackson said in a statement.
People got out of their cars and chased him. He jumped off the bridge, possibly trying to land on the roof of the bus stop on Empire Road, but missed.
The man, in his 20s, landed on the road where he died, with the handbag next to him.
