A 16-year-old was robbed and assaulted Tuesday evening after two suspects stole her wallet and cell phone, police said.
The teenager was waiting for the bus on 8100 Allison Ave. in La Mesa at about 8 p.m. when two women approached her and demanded her cell phone, a San Diego Police Department spokesperson said.
One of the suspects grabbed the teenager’s phone while the other punched her in the face repeatedly.
The suspects then walked south toward the trolley stop, leaving the teenager with abrasions and bruising.
Police are still on the lookout for the suspects, who were described as women between the ages of 21- and 24-years-old. One was about 5’9’’ with neck-length black hair, and was wearing an orange and white sundress. The other was shorter and heavier with short black hair and purple bangs. She was wearing a black halter top and blue jeans.
Anyone with more information on this incident should call the La Mesa Police Department at (619) 667-1400.
