Man, 49, Charged in Coney Island Chain Snatching: NYPD

Police say that a 49-year-old man has been charged with robbery in a broad-daylight chain snatching near a bus stop earlier this year. 

Frazier Dickerson was arrested Tuesday in the July 18 snatching at Mermaid Avenue and West 31st Street.

Video from the scene shows a suspect passing by the stop several times before grabbing the woman's necklace and causing her to fall face-first onto the sidewalk.

A bystander is then seen helping the woman. The suspect runs away, and at least one witness can be seen chasing after him.

The victim was treated at a nearby hospital for a cut to her head.

Police say Dickerson lives four blocks from the robbery scene. It's not clear if he has an attorney.
