HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- A brazen robber was caught on camera taking a man's wallet in the middle of the day in south central Houston.

It happened about three weeks ago on a sidewalk outside an apartment complex in the 4000 block of Griggs Road.

Video shows the suspect get out of a car and walk up to a man carrying what appears to be groceries.

There's some dialogue between them, but then that's when the suspect takes his wallet and runs off.

A getaway driver was waiting for the suspect in an older model white Toyota Camry, police said.
