HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - Honolulu police are investigating yet another purse snatching incident on Oahu — this time at Moanalua Gardens.

On Friday, authorities released surveillance video of the violent crime.

It shows the attack, which happened about noon Thursday, and then the suspect fleeing in a waiting truck. The woman ran after him, but the driver reversed, ran her over and drove off.

She was in serious condition, officials said.

Police have launched an attempted murder investigation.

This follows a number of similar purse snatching incidents in the past month, including in Waikiki and Kakaako.
