When she returned to her home in Deer Park, she parked her car in the driveway and entered her house with her disabled child.

Authorities say a moment later, a man was seen exiting a gold Honda Odyssey from the passenger side.

He smashed the rear window of her vehicle, removed the purse, and was then picked up by the driver of the Honda.
