OKLAHOMA CITY - A woman carrying her 10-week-old baby is targeted by thieves.

Oklahoma City police say the robbery was caught on surveillance camera and it didn't take long for Good Samaritans to help crack this case.

It started when the victim opened her car door and grabbed the car seat with her 10-week-old granddaughter inside.

A pair of thieves targeted the vulnerable victim outside a Walgreens on S.W. 29th St. and S. May Ave.

"They thought I would be an easy mark," said the victim, who asked not to be identified.

Surveillance video shows the woman walking across the parking lot, when one alleged suspect tries to snatch her keys and sprints away.

"I had my purse in one hand and the baby in the right hand. When I walked by him, he snatched the key ring and the chain broke," said the victim.

"They felt she was probably an easy target and grabbed her keys. Unfortunately for them, they did not get away with them," said MSgt. Gary Knight, with the Oklahoma City Police Department.

Police say before committing the robbery, the alleged suspects walked around inside the store's front door for several minutes.

"They clearly were waiting for someone to rob," said Knight.

"They need to be caught because the next person they hit, they're going to hurt," said the victim.

Just a short time after posting the story on KFOR.com, police arrested the pair of accused crooks.

Oklahoma City police say they were flooded with tips, telling detectives who the suspects were and where they could be found.

Authorities say they arrested Lequevin Kelley and Steven Capps on Tuesday.
