Stealing candy from a baby happened when a woman robbed an eight-year-old girl outside a Western Addition convenience store. The girl was selling candy when the woman asked her for change for bus fare. As the girl went to her money bag, the woman twisted her arm, nabbed the bag, and jumped onto a bus. Surveillance video from the store shows the suspect and the SFPD asks for any help in finding the thief. [Los Angeles Times]
