Boston Park Plaza Hotel’s newly refurbished lobby.

I observed a man watching a young woman trying to stop her little girl from crawling on the carpeted floor at the Boston Park Plaza Hotel lobby. Her lovely Louis Vuitton purse was on the seat.

He was about to snatch it.

I screamed: “grab your pocketbook!”


The man bolted.
