    The youth assaulted

    These sentences popped up in my mind. I am not sure if they sound natural. Would you please correct my mistakes?

    The youth assaulted an old lady on the street, trying to snatch her bag. But to his consternation, the old woman gripped his hand and skilfully threw him to the ground. "Don't you ever attack a jiu-jitsu master, even if she is old," she said grinning at him.

    If you put a comma after "she said" it will be fine.
