Police released these still images from surveillance video of the two suspects.

PORTLAND, Ore.-- A man and a woman were caught on surveillance camera after police say they stole a senior citizen’s wallet from her purse.

The pair stole the wallet on Sunday at Winco Foods on Northeast 119th Street. The victim found a strange man going through her purse, which she had left for a minute in her shopping cart.

When she confronted him, police say he claimed to be confused and left the store quickly. The woman soon realized her wallet was missing.

The images are from a Target store where the victim’s stolen credit card was used a short time after the crime.

Police also released a picture (seen below) of the thieves’ car, a white coupe.
