Walmart robber caught on cameraPublished 11:01am Thursday, November 29, 2012
A woman was robbed in the Walmart parking lot Wednesday afternoon at about 1:30 p.m., according to Fergus Falls Police.
The woman was putting her two children into her vehicle when a man approached her and asked her for money. The woman denied the man money, but he asked her again, saying he could see into her purse, and he knew she had money. The woman again said no.
The man then said, “You can give it to me, or I can take it.” At this point the woman felt threatened, so she reached into her purse and handed the man $5.
The man asked the woman if she had any more money but left after she said she did not.
Police have not identified the man, but he was captured on a surveillance camera. He is not believed to be from around the area.
