Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

Corpus Christi police need your help finding the man who mugged an elderly woman outside of an HEB grocery store nearly two weeks ago.

It happened at the HEB on South Port Avenue. A woman left the grocery store and walked to the back of the building, when a silver four-door sedan pulled up behind her. A man got out of the back seat, ran to the woman and stole her purse. He then got back in the car and sped away.

The man who took the woman's purse was described as a white male who wore a red visor, gray t-shirt with the number 24 on the front, khaki cargo shorts and white tennis shoes. There was at least one other person involved who drove the car.

If you have any additional information about this crime, please call Crime Stoppers at 361-888-8477, or visit www.888tips.com.
