CORPUS CHRISTI - Investigators released surveillance images today of two people wanted for stealing a purse from an 83-year-old woman behind the HEB on Port Avenue last Friday.
Hortenzia Martinez told us last week she had just picked up a prescription. She regularly walks to store and was heading back home when a guy grabbed her purse. All she saw was the back of his head as he got into the passenger seat of a silver four-door car and took off.
Police say the purse snatcher was wearing a red visor, a gray shirt with the number 24 on the front, khaki cargo shorts and white tennis shoes.
There's no good description of the second suspect who was driving the getaway car, a Ford Focus. The surveillance video images from the HEB just show a distant shot of another man running towards the car.
Martinez tells us the suspects only got away with her prescription, 75 cents, and some stamps.
If you have any information on the suspects, call Crime Stoppers at 888-TIPS, or submit a tip online at www.888tips.com.
