And what's your reflex when you feel like someone's trying to steal your bag? "Excuse-me sir, are you aware that stealing is a crime? Please do not force me to call the police"?

exactly. some of us have this reflex where our arm just lashes out and elbows then punches/scratches the potential attacker. I'd rather defend myself then apologize for falsely thinking you were a threat than just stand there and let you rob me or whatever.

The fighting back reaction could actually get you killed though if your attacker has a weapon. So it may not be the wisest reaction, especially from behind, if you can't see if they have one or not. Just a thought.

I bet you felt so bad afterwards. Don't stress about it too much though, because the best of us would've done something like that. I hope you cleared things up with the old man!
