LOUISVILLE, Ky.  --  Police arrested a Louisville man after his attempt of stealing a woman's purse at a popular downtown restaurant.

Police say Adam Ashby walked into the Bristol Bar & Grille on Main St. and grabbed a woman's purse off of the ground. He then headed for the door to escape.

Ashby didn't make it far enough though, as customers of the restaurant caught him and held him down until police arrived.

The purse's owner, an out-of-town woman, was able to recover $25,000 worth of jewelry that was inside the bag.
