A young woman's ex-boyfriend, against whom she had an order of protection, accosted her and stole her purse while she was riding the subway last Wednesday. The 18-year-old woman was riding the subway at 1 a.m. on July 24, returning home from Coney Island on the northbound 2 train, when her 24-year-old ex-boyfriend engaged her in conversation. When the train stopped at Park Place, her ex took her purse from the seat next to her and ran off the train. She followed him and chased him to the street, where he removed the wallet and dropped her purse. She pursued him through the turnstiles, but he fled up the staircase to exit on Broadway and Park Place. It turned out that he had an open warrant on a charge of domestic violence assault against the woman. Police conducted a canvass of the area but were unable to locate him. Items taken from the purse included a wallet, insurance card, debit card, and driver's permit.
