HOUSTON—A woman says her purse was violently ripped from her arm last Tuesday outside a movie theater in northeast Houston.

 

The attack happened quickly and was captured on video at the Starplex Theater in Kingwood.

In the video you can see a man knock a woman down and take her purse, before running off. A getaway car is waiting outside the theater.

Gabriela Amber was left with scrapes and bruises.

“It was so quick, so quick. I don’t have time for anything else,” she said. “The cell phone flew away. I just grabbed my phone. I remember telling my friend I’ll call you later. And then I called the police.”

Another woman took a picture of the suspect as she just happened to be snapping a photo of her daughter. Police said the photo shows great detail.  You can see a large tattoo on the suspect’s left leg.

Anyone with information is asked to call police.
