iPad Theft Victim
HOUSTON -

Houston Police said a woman knocked down a little girl and stole her iPad Tuesday.

The girl's mother said she took her 3-year-old daughter out of the car at around 1:30 p.m.at the Maxey Village Apartments Tuesday, and as she was taking her 9-month-old out of his car seat, a woman approached.

"When I turned around to grab the baby from the car seat, she came running towards her, knocked her down and took her iPad," she said. "They came over here and they were waiting for us to come through the breezeway I guess so they could take the iPad. So, I guess they didn't see me coming right away."

The mother said she had noticed a man and a woman walk to her apartment complex from next door. She said her daughter was okay, just shaken up.

The Houston Police Robbery Division is investigating.
