Albuquerque police have released video of a purse-snatching outside the Walmart at 2701 Carlisle NE in hopes of finding two suspects in the case.
The incident occurred at 5:15 p.m. Oct. 11.
Police say a male suspect punched a 21-year-old woman  and grabbed her purse after she had cashed her paycheck inside the store.
A male bystander chased the suspect, who tripped and dropped the purse, police said. When the bystander tried to recover the purse, the suspect punched him and then fled. Police say the bystander was then able to pick up the purse and returned it to the victim.
Store security and police officers reviewed surveillance images and saw the male suspect with a female inside the store. Both watched the victim cash her check and then followed her to the parking lot.
The female walked to a silver four-door sedan as the male attacked the victim, police say.  As the male suspect fled on foot, the female followed in the same direction in the vehicle.
Any information can be reported anonymously to Crime Stoppers at (505) 843-STOP.
