A woman successfully fought off two teen girls who tried to grab her purse and a bag of items she was returning to Stoneridge Shopping Center at 2:57 p.m. July 6, according to a police report.
The woman had just arrived at the mall, and as she opened her trunk to get the items for return, two young women jumped her. One tried to grab her purse, while the other made a grab for the bag. The victim began screaming for help and the suspect who grabbed the purse hit her four or five times on the left side of her face. The woman managed to hold on to her belongings.
The report said the two suspects escaped in a white Honda with two others inside. Both suspects are described as 15 to 16 years old, black with black hair, about 5 feet tall and weighing about 110 pounds. Police are checking surveillance videos for details.
