Two women were walking out of Hot Spot Detox on the 1500 block of East Central when a man tried to snatch one of their purse.
The women struggled with the purse snatcher and an employee came out of the store and got involved. The employee was punched in the head twice.
The thief ran off with a wallet from the purse.
Officers got a description of the thief, and arrested the man a bit later.
