DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Dayton police think a robbery suspect used two children to help steal a wallet.

Dayton police released a surveillance photo of the woman Thursday. The two girls are believed to be between 7 and 10 years old.

Police say the woman then used the man’s debit card to make purchases at several area stores.

The woman had a distinctive streak of pink in her hair at the time that might help someone recognize her.

Call Crime Stoppers at 222-7867 if you can help identify the woman.
