AMARILLO, TX (KFDA) - Police are offering a $1,000 cash reward for your help to capture two men who they said stole a purse from an elderly woman.

Saturday afternoon near Grand Street and Interstate 40, two men were seen exiting Walmart before one of them reportedly stole the 81-year-old woman's purse.

Officers said the driver prepared the getaway car while the other man ran up behind the victim, ripped the purse from her arm, then ran to climb into the getaway car while being chased by a witness.
