A 21-year-old Marietta man is behind bars at the Greenville County Detention Center for allegedly snatching the purse of a 60-year-old woman. Even worse, this gutless sleazeball, sorry, allegedly gutless sleazeball needed two accomplices to help him pull off the violent robbery:

The incident happened around 1 pm Friday afternoon in front of Dallas Skye Salon on Pelham Road. Greenville Police say that 21-year old Gabriel Lamont Donaldson, of Marietta, admitted to snatching the purse of a 60 year old woman and causing massive bruises to the victim’s shoulder.

Donaldson, who police say also admitted to being the driver of a 1996 Ford Crown Victoria that was involved in the robbery, has been charged with strong armed robbery. Two other men, 20-year old Recardo Darel Thompson and 21-year old Kenneth Jamar Burnside, both of Travelers Rest, have been charged with accessory after the fact of a felony.

All three men have failed to make bond.
