2 teens arrested in Northside purse theft

Two 19-year-old men are accused of attacking a woman outside her north Spokane home and stealing her purse.

Jonathan R. Crisler and Andrey A. Murray each face a charge of second-degree robbery after a woman said Crisler stole her purse after she exited her car at 3604 N. Washington St.

A motorist witnessed Crisler running with a purse eastbound on Gordon from the alley behind the woman's home before getting into a Green Pontiac driven by Murray. The driver memorized the license plate number and provided it to Spokane police.

Officers contacted the suspects a short while later and recovered $80 from Crisler's coat pocket that the victim had reported stolen.

Crisler and Murray were booked into the Spokane County Jail.
