NBC Bay AreaA 90-year-old woman, traveling through Oakland from the Central Valley, California, got lost. She pulled into the Arco AM/PM on 106th Street and MacArthur Boulveard, where she was attacked at the door and the assailant went off with her purse.  A customer asked if she was alright and if she wanted to pursue the man who had her purse. As the customer drove the woman in her car, she dialed 911 in the passenger seat. Together they caught up to the assailant and held him until the police arrived to arrest him.
