SAN ANTONIO - A woman and her 5-year-old child found themselves the victims of a terrifying robbery Tuesday morning at a Northwest Side apartment complex.

Investigators with the San Antonio Police Department said the woman and her son were walking out of their apartment on Callaghan Road near Babcock, when a man hiding in some bushes jumped out and yelled, 'I'm the Boogieman' before demanding the woman's purse at gunpoint.

Police say the man was wearing all black clothing and a black mask. He ran off on foot toward Callaghan Road.

The woman and her child were not hurt. She told officers she did not have any money in the purse, only makeup.
