A DePaul University student allegedly snatched a purse from an elderly woman, dislocating her shoulder in the struggle, because he was having a bad day and wanted someone else to share his misery.

Zachary Goldak, 19, is charged with aggravated robbery and could face up to 15 years in prison if convicted.

On Tuesday, 5pm he came up behind the 78-year-old victim on the sidewalk near his home and grabbed her purse. The two struggled and he pushed her to the ground, dislocating her shoulder.

Another man chased Goldak to the entrance of his apartment building where he recovered the purse and held Goldak until police arrived

"When officers arrived, the defendant told them that he was having a bad day and
[expletive] woman, she could have a bad day, too," Antonietti said.

There goes my alma mater reputation.... DePaul, where when you have a bad day you assault a senior citizen
