Elderly woman's purse snatched during Manchester church service
MANCHESTER – Steven Doiron was arrested Sunday for allegedly stealing an elderly woman’s purse during a church ceremony.
Two witnesses claimed Doiron reached over the pew and stole the 87-year-old’s purse. They followed him to the basement of the church where he left the bag. But, he made off with the victim’s car keys, house keys, and cash.
Alderman Patrick Long, a church goer, was able to briefly restrain the suspect outside the church before he got away and fled on foot.
Steven Doiron, 27 of Manchester, was arrested later at his Lake Avenue apartment.
