Alleged Purse Snatcher’s Trial Gets Delayed

Posted by wlpo on February 3, 2012

There won’t be a trial next week for the man accused of strong-arming purses away from women leaving bars in La Salle.

At a hearing Thursday, the lawyer for Christopher Coleman of La Salle asked for and received more time to prepare for his client’s robbery trial.  A new trial date was set for April 9th.

After keeping a close eye on Coleman, La Salle Police arrested him in late November for stealing purses from women that were leaving Jake’s Pour House and the Dugout.  Coleman had just been released from prison.
