    BURLINGTON — A 22-year-old Vermont man is facing charges after he was chased down by three men after allegedly trying to snatch a purse from a woman on a Burlington street.

    Police said Christopher Jerome of Lincoln attempted to steal a purse from a 21-year-old woman on a downtown street about 11:30 p.m. Saturday.

    Officials said the woman resisted, drawing the attention of three men who were nearby. The men are credited with chasing Jerome and cornering him in a fenced-in yard on College Street until officers arrived.

    Jerome is being held on $15,000 bail on assault and robbery charges.
