Security video shows a woman stalking and preying on an elderly woman before snatching her purse inside a grocery store.

She waits for the perfect moment, before swiping the purse and walking away unnoticed.

Police say it happened Tuesday morning in Los Angeles. The woman placed her purse on the scooter's floorboard, making her an easy target for the criminal.

In the video it appears she has no idea someone is even standing behind her. She continues shopping as the suspect walks away with all her money.

Police say she left the parking lot in a white sedan. She dumped the woman's purse, but kept her ID, credit cards and money.
