Two women charged over handbag snatch

The story that follows is just another attempt to bust the gender myths, regarding violent behaviour.

Feminists would have us believe that men have a monopoly on violence, however the tragic reality is that both men and women are capable of committing violent acts.

But remember the vast majority of women never committ such acts, just like the vast majority of men never committ any acts of violence and as such violent behavour is an aberration in both men and women.

Two women have been charged after a violent handbag snatch on the Gold Coast early today, with one arrested after a police pursuit.

Police said a 24-year-old woman was assaulted by two women who stole her handbag at the intersection of Elkhorn Avenue and Ferny Avenue, Surfers Paradise, about 1am (AEST).
A 24-year-old woman was detained at the scene and has been charged with assault occasioning bodily harm.

Another woman who allegedly fled in a white sedan was chased by police through the suburbs of Southport and Ashmore to Nielsens Road, Carrara, where she was detained, police said.

The 31-year-old Southport woman was charged with robbery with violence and five driving offences, including dangerous operation and drink driving.

She is due to face Southport Magistrates Court tomorrow.

The 24-year-old Parkwood woman appeared at the same court today and was granted bail.
She is due to appear again on March 26.
