A woman with her child were recently threatened at an  H-E-B parking lot in Austin.

According to KXAN, the incident occurred on October 7, at 900 Brodie Lane in south Austin at approximately 10:30 a.m.

Seriously, it wasn't even super early in the morning when a unidentified man threatened to kill a woman and her child if she did not immediately hand over all of her money.

Luckily the woman was able to run back inside the store with her child to safety.

The Austin Police Department has issued a press release and is asking for the public's help in identifying the unknown man.

If you have information about this case please call the APD Robbery Unit at 512-974-5092 or Crime Stoppers at 512-472-TIPS.

Now, I've never been one to fret too much about the possibility of being attacked or threatened, but as I'm getting older I've decided it is better to be safe than sorry!

So here are a couple of things that I think ladies should grab, just in case!
