Tonight my wife had her purse taken in broad daylight in the parking lot at the Wal-Mart at Potranco & 1604.

The Guy was a Hispanic male in his 20's, he was driving a white Lincoln Mkt (better car than my wife ) he rolled up as she was putting her groceries in the car and said she had a flat, when she went around to look he got out and approached her her with a knife saying "Give me you F'in purse"

Within the hour he had gassed up, rented 3 movies, and charged over $2k at Target...

Ladies don't not to fall for this...men warn your wives!!!

Thanks for the heads up and sorry this happened to your wife. With that kind of shopping spree I'm sure they'll catch him on video or remember him or his accomplice (how many customers are spending $2k a clip at Target right now?)

Sorry man thanks for the heads up! That side of town always has me on my toes. I always keep a "fake" wallet with just a few dollar bills in it just incase of mugging. Worked fine for me in Cali

I can't stand that WM or the one at Culebra/1604. If I have to go, I'll use the store in Helotes.

Should be pretty easy to look up the surveillance video of the Target.

Very sorry that this happened to your wife. I am glad that she was not hurt in the event. Sorry that you now have to deal with going through your bank to get the charges cancelled, I know what a PITA that can be, and all because some low life, dirtbag, burden on society would rather take from people than earn his own way. I absolutely hate a thief....
