GARLAND (CBSDFW.COM) – Police in Garland have found the car that was used in a violent robbery involving a child last week in University Park.
They arrested the driver, a woman named Tiffany James, and charged her with an unrelated robbery.
Investigators said they hope James will lead them to the woman who held a knife to a 7-year-old boy’s throat, as she robbed his mother last Friday at the Snider Plaza Shell Station in University Park.
Police said shortly after the robbery, the suspect attempted to use a stolen credit card at a department store. Investigators were able to pull security footage of the person they believe is responsible and the car she used to get away in after the robbery.
They’re looking for an African American woman in her 30s described as 5’5”. She was last seen driving the black Dodge Challenger located today.
The victim posted to Facebook, writing that the suspect spent $13,000 on her stolen credit cards. Her post also said her son is traumatized from the crime.
Anyone with information should call University Park Police.
