According to the victim's husband, the incident happened in the front middle of the store near the registers. The suspect, a skinny black male about 6 foot tall grabbed his wife’s phone and pushed her out of the way and fled the store.
The husband chased after him but was unable to catch him. He jumped into what is believed to be a 2010 or newer white sedan with dark windows and a red and white plate. The vehicle was occupied by as many as 3 more individuals. The vehicle sped away.
The victim and her husband have tried to use the Find My Phone feature but it says the phone is offline. They have filed a police report and have attempted to get assistance from Walmart asset protection but have been unsuccessful at this time.
