The victim said she last saw her wallet while in the store on Aug. 22 at about 3:40 p.m. She was in line waiting to pay for merchandise, removed a credit card from her wallet, placed the wallet on the countertop at the register, answered a phone call and completed her purchase.

STORE EMPLOYEES ASSAULTED
Fort Bend County Crime Stoppers will pay a cash reward for information that leads to the arrest of two perpetrators who stole items and then assaulted a store employee.
At 10:30 p.m. Friday, Aug. 5, Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office deputies were called to a Kroger store located in the 9300 block of Highway 6 South in the Houston area of the county.
Store personnel said an unknown black woman filled her grocery basket with merchandise and then walked out without paying for the items.
The cashier observed the incident and attempted to stop the subject, but was assaulted by the suspect’s companion, a black man.
Both subjects loaded the merchandise into a red 2016 Nissan Altima with a Texas registration.
The woman is about 5-feet, 5-inches tall and weighs about 170 pounds. She was wearing a dress that had gray stripes. The man appears to be in his early 20s. He is about 5-feet, 10-inches tall and has a slim build. He was wearing a white t-shirt and he has closely cropped hair.
CRAIGSLIST SNEAKER THIEF
Sugar Land police are looking for a man who answered a Craiglist ad, attacked the seller and stole his merchandise.
The victim told police he posted an advertisement on Craigslist for three pairs of Air Jordan sneakers valued at more than $585.
He was contacted by a potential buyer on Aug. 11, and the two agreed to meet at First Colony Mall, 16535 Southwest Freeway, at 8 p.m. the same day.
The two met inside the mall but agreed to conduct the transaction in the parking lot because the buyer said his baby was in his vehicle with a friend.
As they walked toward a grey Nissan passenger vehicle occupied by a black man, the seller was unable to see a baby inside the vehicle. The seller became uneasy and went back inside the mall. The suspect followed him into a restroom, sprayed the victim with pepper spray, hit him twice and took the shoes.
The suspect was last seen casually walking away and leaving in the Nissan. He was a black man with braided hair; about 6 feet 2 inches tall; and was wearing a black bandana on his head, a Charlotte Hornets shirt, black sweat pants and a pair of black and white shoes that the victim believed to be Air Jordan’s.
A review of surveillance video showed the suspect in the mall with the stolen merchandise.
