Women Catch Bridgeport Man Snooping Through Car

Bridgeport Police Department

Darren Green, 50, was reportedly caught rifling through a woman's purse in her parked car in Bridgeport on Sunday. Police said the woman and her friend detained him until officers arrived.

When two women caught a strange man rifling through a purse in the backseat of their car, they did the only thing they could think to do – grabbed him and held on until police arrived to place him under arrest.

According to police, 50-year-old Darren Green, of Bridgeport, was inside the car Sunday digging through a purse when one of the women walked out and saw him in the backseat with the light on.

She asked him to get out, and instead of leaving the vehicle, he invited her in, police said.

The woman then grabbed Green and pulled him out of the car. Her friend, the car’s owner, helped detain him until officers arrived on scene, according to police.

Green reportedly told police he got into the wrong car.

He was arrested and charged with burglary. His bond was set at $25,000.
