Police: Suspect gave man CPR, took wife's purse

The Associated Press

TITUSVILLE, Fla.— Police in central Florida are questioning the motives of a man they say performed CPR on another man suffering a heart attack at a convenience store and then stole a purse from his wife.

Titusville police say the hero turned villain on Dec. 3 when he performed CPR on the man and even waited for paramedics to arrive. Authorities say he even comforted the man's wife with a hug, but took her purse and coat before she left for the hospital.

The woman's husband later died.

Police are offering a reward for tips leading to his arrest.
