HOBOKEN -- A pair of 13-year-old twins chased a man down Bloomfield Street on Monday after he allegedly stole their mother’s purse from out of the family car while she was inside a local bagel shop buying them breakfast, according to a police report.

Around 7:45 a.m. on Monday, a Woodbridge woman parked her car outside the shop on the 100 block of Bloomfield Street and left her sons inside. Within a few minutes, one of the sons told police, a dark-skinned Hispanic male approached the car and asked him and his brother where their mother was.

According to the report, the man then opened the car’s front door, repeated his question and then took the mother’s wallet from her purse before taking off down Bloomfield Street. The sons then exited the vehicle and took off after the man when their mother, who had just exited the bagel shop, yelled at them to stop. Thus, they ended their pursuit.

The woman’s wallet contained her driver’s license, four credit cards, a Social Security card, family photos, and $140.
