A man was caught on video last month, brazenly stealing a woman’s purse at the end of the day, in a Texas mall — to the left of the woman tumbling from a moving escalator.

Surveillance video released by authorities in new york shows that the suspect after the woman drove into the parking lot of a shopping center, the Galleria mall, at about 2 a.m. on Oct. 17. He had apparently followed her to the Saks Fifth Avenue in a shopping center with a Bank of America site, where they had just withdrawn the money.

If the woman is in her handbag, she was taking the escalator down, pulled, and dragged toward the doors leading out to the parking lot, she let go of her purse. The woman’s family, told KTRK she was scratched and bruised.

The man, who was dressed in a white t-shirt with a hoodie and a pair of jeans on Oct. 17, it is supposed to be for long periods of time, with a thin build.
