DALLAS (KPTV) -

Police are searching for a man accused of snatching a women’s purse right out of her cart at a Dallas Safeway.

It started just like any other shopping trip for Kathy Deinhart at a Dallas Safeway Tuesday afternoon. She went aisle to aisle, filling up her cart. But when she went to checkout, she said her purse was gone.

A surveillance picture caught a man walking out with the bag Deinhart said is hers.

“He reached under my stuffed animal that my purse was under and just grabbed it and walked out,” said Deinhart.

Deinhart said before that, surveillance video showed him following her through the store for a good five minutes.

“Scared, violated totally,” said Deinhart.

But what makes her feel even more scared and violated, is that inside her purse was her ID with her address and a garage door opener to her home.

“That’s what scares me the most is that he knows where I live and there’s possibly entry into my home,” said Deinhart. “That’s the scariest part for me.”

She’s now sharing the picture of the man anywhere she can, hoping someone recognizes him.

“It scares me to think that more people are out there and can become victims and so I really want people to see his face,” said Deinhart. “Let’s catch him so he can’t do it again."

Anyone who recognizes the man or happens to find the purse in the picture, call Dallas Police at 503-831-3516.
