A Wenatchee woman was arrested after she jumped into a car and attempted to snatch the driver’s purse.

Wenatchee Police Sgt. Mark Huson said a woman was parking her car in 100 block of Buchanan Avenue Friday morning when another woman opened the passenger-side front door and got in. The suspect then grabbed a purse and tried to flee the car. But the driver grabbed the purse and wrestled it away from the woman, Huson said.
