Two people have been arrested in a violent purse-snatching at a south Fort Myers Bealls store – and their victim has a lot to say about it.

Lee County deputies say Kelly Marie Berry, 25, and Stefan Dwayne Rease, 24, are facing charges for the crime.

The robbery happened Friday outside the Bealls at 13300 S. Cleveland Ave. Deputies said Friday that a man attempted to take the purse off a woman near the entrance of the store. She held onto it and was dragged 10 feet before the man ran off with the purse, surveillance video shows.
