TULSA -- Days after Tulsa police identified a suspect known as the "Good Samaritan," Kenneth V. Gregory was taken into custody.
Police identified Gregory, 57, last week as a purse snatching suspect. They say he stopped to help a woman who was involved in a car crash last month near 26th and Yale. Minutes later they say he stole her purse.
