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.
