A group of good Samaritans stopped a suspected purse-snatcher outside a convenience store in Tennessee – and the emotional confrontation was caught on camera

As Tempra Mosley unlocked her car, she set her purse down, along with a scarf and some Krispy Kreme doughnuts. 

When she turned back around, she said Ezell Graham was running away with all her things.

She screamed for help, and several witnesses caught up to the suspect and restrained him until police arrived. 

In the video, Mosley tearfully tells Graham, “Sir, don’t ever do that again. In the name of Jesus, you don’t have to do that. If you had asked me for anything, I would have helped you.”

Graham responds by crying out, saying, "I'm sorry. I can't help myself."

Later, Mosley adds, "Your mother taught you better than this."

Graham is charged with multiple counts of robbery, attempted robbery, burglary and theft.

Police say they found items taken in four earlier robberies in Graham's car.
