Wallet snatched victim warns against shopping alone after she was robbed in Target parking lot

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) – An afternoon trip to Target off Westheimer and Fondren turned into a traumatic and terrifying experience for a Houston woman.

“There are two young men to my right,” said Kim Williams Mathers. “They’re less than five feet from the front door. I don’t think that’s true.”

Security camera video released by Houston police shows the two suspects sitting outside the store’s entrance and appearing to be watching shoppers come and go on Nov.

“I walked out and had a bad feeling,” Mathers said. “I feel like someone is watching me.”

As Mathers leaves the store and makes her way through the parking lot, one of the men seen in the video is following her and sneaks up from behind to get her wallet before running away and jumping over a nearby fence. .

Mathers says she usually locks her purse to the cart using a child safety seat, but didn’t do so this time.

Inside her wallet were $100, her credit card, car keys, a ring, and her driver’s license. The thieves did not try to use her card, she said.

Houston police are still searching for suspects and are urging shoppers to be aware of their surroundings and not shop alone.

Mathers has a message to the men who robbed her:

“I go to work every day. You can go to work every day,” she said. “Secondly, there’s a lot of community resources here in Houston. You can find some, you don’t have to hurt or rob someone just to get something.”
