Two men rob woman in South Austin at knifepoint: APD

The Austin Police Department is looking for two men they say robbed a woman at knifepoint in South Austin and used her bank card at The Domain.

APD says the woman stopped at a Taqueria in the 4400 block of E. Ben White Boulevard on July 12 around noon. When she was getting into her vehicle, an unidentified Black man confronted her with a knife.

The man took her purse from her vehicle and then got into the rear passenger seat of another vehicle.

The woman then reported her bank card was used to make purchases 45 minutes later at a Neiman Marcus at The Domain in North Austin. Surveillance cameras captured pictures of the man who used the bank card.

The second suspect is described as a Black man around 30 years old and thin. He was last seen wearing a white shirt and black pants.
