Call me suspicious

I guess I'm just a suspicious old coot but how did they know the salesman was there?

Did these men just happen to be in the parking lot when the salesman drove up and on the spur of the moment rob him?

It could be, or it might could be something else.

Jewelry salesman robbed in Stone Oak

Police are searching for a group of men who ambushed a jewelry vendor in the parking lot of a Stone Oak business.

The suspects approached the vendor and grabbed a bag full of rings and other jewelry items and fled the scene, police said.

The incident happened about 10 a.m. in the 18700 block of Stone Oak Parkway.

An employee of a nearby jewelry store said the vendor was visiting the business to show a new line of jewelry.

According to the store employee, the suspects assaulted the vendor then stole his car keys and cell phone before punching holes in the tires of his rental car.
