SALEM -- A woman confronted a suspect at a steakhouse who broke into her car and stole her purse Wednesday morning.

The woman, who wished to remain unnamed, returned to her car and noticed her window was smashed and her purse was taken after working out at a 24 Hour Fitness.

Workers at the gym reviewed the security video and helped identify the suspect. Then, a worker at a nearby store told them the thief was at a local steakhouse.

That's when the woman confronted the suspect.

The employee then came out with a 100 gift cards, and I said that's my black card, and she bolted out of the Original Roadhouse, came out the front door, ran across the grass and ran across Lancaster drive, the woman told KGW.

Police were tracking down leads and were looking for the suspected thief.
