LINCOLN CITY, OR (KPTV) -

A man was caught on camera Monday stalking an elderly woman to steal from her. 

Surveillance video from a Safeway in Lincoln City showed the man creeping toward the 84-year-old woman. Police say the man waited for the right opportunity and stole her wallet from her purse. The woman did not realize her wallet was missing until she went to pay for her groceries. 

Police hope the theft serves as a reminder for people to keep a close eye on their belongings. 

Anyone who recognizes the man is asked to contact Lincoln City Police.
