Police were working to track down the robber that targeted a mother and her daughter.
The robbery happened Sunday evening in the parking lot of the Walmart Store, located along Britton Parkway.
The mother, who 10TV is not identifying, said that she and her daughter had their purses in the front of the shopping cart. Someone pulled up to them, a person got out of the vehicle and grabbed the purses.
Columbus police stopped short of saying they are seeing a rash of the robberies. They did say these are crimes of opportunity.
In most cases, the crooks will drive around and wait before approaching an unsuspecting target.
