This begs the question what is a three-year-old doing with an iPad?

Well it turns out the child was just holding it while her mother was getting her nine-month-old brother out of his car seat. And apparently one low-life saw this as the perfect opportunity to get herself an iPad.

The victim's mother told KSAT.com,

When I turned around to grab the baby from the car seat, she came running towards her, knocked her down and took her iPad. They came over here and they were waiting for us to come through the breezeway, I guess, so they could take the iPad.

She also relayed that her three-year-old daughter is okay, just shaken up. The Houston Police Robbery Division is investigating.
