Security cam captures elderly assault in Louisiana Wal-Mart parking lot...
Police in Denham Springs, Louisiana are hoping that security camera footage will lead them to the woman who beat an elderly shopper while attempting to steal her purse over the weekend.
The suspect in this case is a white female who appears to be in her late teens or early twenties and has long brown hair and a thin build.
The victim was an elderly lady who was shopping at Walmart on her way to church.
The video shows the suspect following the victim in the parking lot until the victim reached her car.
The suspect then violently tried to rip the purse from the victim's hands, but the victim fell to the ground still clutching her purse.
The suspect then gave up the attack and left driving a silver colored Pontiac Firebird.
