This incident is Exhibit A in why I avoid North Star Mall like the plague.
Kudos to the police officers who recognized him from the video tape the following day.
San Antonio police Saturday night arrested a man suspected of trying to rob a couple at gunpoint and shooting one victim in a parking garage at North Star Mall.
Derrick Woolridge, 29, is being held in Bexar County Jail on one count of aggravated robbery. A judge set bail at $75,000.
An arrest warrant affidavit states police working surveillance at a VIA bus stop near the mall Saturday spotted Woolridge, who was still wearing Mardi Gras beads, a blue bracelet and a pair of sandals, and recognized him from footage of the robbery.
