HOUSTON – There have been three robberies in Houston Wal-Mart parking lots since February. In each case, the suspect(s) drive-up to an elderly woman as she walks to her car, reach out the drivers-side window and steal her purse.

In two of the robberies, the victim was dragged to the ground as the suspect got away. The ladies are all okay (but we can't say the same for the person that thinks it's okay to steal from Grandma).

The same crime has happened twice at the Wal-Mart on Westview and once on the Northwest Freeway. If you have any information, contact the HPD Robbery Division at 713-308-0700 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
