The incident took place Oct. 24 at The Galleria, according to the Houston Police Department. Officials believe the woman was followed to the mall from a nearby bank where she made a cash withdrawal, KTRK reported.
Surveillance video shows the woman driving to the mall and pulling into a parking garage space. What police believe is the suspect's vehicle is seen following behind the victim's car. The victim exits her car and boards an escalator. A man follows her and approaches the woman from behind, grabbing her purse while she is on the escalator and dragging her backward. The struggle continues until the woman lets go of her purse strap, at which point the robber flees the scene in a burgundy-colored, four-door Buick.
