OJ Simpson’s ex-girlfriend caught attempting to rob a purse

Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - Police say OJ Simpson's ex-girlfriend is caught red-handed trying to rob a woman right outside of West Acres Mall.

It comes as Christie Prody is still going through the court system, on a different case.

Police say this was an attempted mugging. They say the victim was simply walking into the mall with her purse around her shoulder and Prody tried to snatch it and get away.

This is where it happened on the West side of the mall at the main JC Penny's entrance.

Police say the two women went to the ground in scuffle, the victim started screaming for help and a guard arrived just seconds later.

The victim suffered minor injuries.

37 year old Christie Prody recently asked a judge to put her in drug court as punishment for an April charge where she stole pain killers from a Moorhead home.

Now she's facing robbery.

Lt. Joel Vettel, Fargo Police: “She was not charged with any drug crimes but again the behavior certainly appears to be fairly erratic. This was certainly a rare occurrence in this community.”

Lt. Vettel says with the holidays approaching police see more of these types of desperation crimes and this case is a perfect reminder that you need to always carry caution, no matter where you are.
