Police are asking for the public’s help in identifying the robber who cut a woman with a knife last week outside a Walmart Supercenter in north Fort Worth.
The woman was loading purchases into her car outside the Walmart at 8520 N. Beach St. at 7:25 p.m. Oct. 29 when she was approached by a man who appeared to be 25 to 30 years old, police said. The man demanded “items” while the woman yelled and resisted, according to a Fort Worth police news release.
The robber cut the woman on the face and hand with a knife and ran off.
Witnesses chased him to a nearby Dairy Queen parking lot where he got into a dark green or blue mid-2000s Dodge Ram single cab pickup. The driver headed north on North Beach, the bulletin states.

Surveillance footage from the Walmart shows that the men were in the parking lot for about 30 minutes before the woman was attacked. The men appeared to be watching customers enter and leave the store, police said.
The assailant was described as white, 25 to 30, 6 feet 2, 250 pounds, with hair tucked behind his ears and a possible left ear piercing. He had a distinctly southern accent, an overbite and light mustache and goatee, witnesses told police.
He was wearing a black T-shirt with writing, a dark ball cap and jeans torn around the ankles.
The pickup driver had dark hair and possibly a beard, and was wearing a light-colored short-sleeved shirt, police said.
Aggravated robbery is a first-degree felony punishable by five to 99 years in prison and/or a fine of up to $10,000.
