LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) -

The Longview Police Department is seeking two males who were involved in a scam in order to distract a woman and steal her purse.

According to police, a white male started a conversation with the victim, eventually asking her if he could buy her gas. The male went into the store, appearing to purchase the gas. He then went back out and continue to talk to the victim. When the pump didn't start, the male sent the victim in to investigate. As soon as she went inside, the suspect took her purse and rode away in a car driven by a black male.
