CORPUS CHRISTI - An elderly woman was robbed of her purse outside the H-E-B on Kostoryz Sunday morning by a man who had asked for some spare change.
Surveillance cameras captured some of that robbery. At the top center frame of the video you can see a man walk up to the woman as she unloads her groceries.
Police say the 74-year-old woman was about to hand over a dollar when the guy grabbed her purse and took off running.
An off-duty officer saw what happened. He was able to write down the license plate number of the silver Chevy Impala that picked up the robber. Police have not provided the license plate number to the public.
If you have any information that could help the investigation, call Crime Stoppers at 888-TIPS.
