BENSALEM, Pa. (WPVI) -- Police have arrested a man and woman accused of swiping a woman's credit card from a restaurant in Bensalem, Pennsylvania.

The pair have been identified as 48-year-old Michael Grantham of New Jersey, and 41-year-old Mary Ramirez of Philadelphia.

It happened Wednesday at the Chick-Fil-A on Horizon Boulevard.

Surveillance video shows Grantham and Ramirez sit down at a table.

Ramirez kept a lookout while Grantham positioned his chair so he was right near a mother and her children.

Police say he stole the victim's wallet, then they went to a nearby Target and used her credit card.

They tried to use the card again at a different Target, but the card was declined.

Police say tips helped police identify the pair.

Grantham is in Camden County Prison on $75,000 bail awaiting extradition, and Ramirez is in Bucks County Prison in lieu of $75,000 bail, 10 percent.
