LA MESA (CNS) - A woman was hit in the face while thwarting two teenage girls' attempt to steal her cell phone outside a La Mesa shopping center, police announced Sunday.

The 33-year-old victim was talking on her phone near the Panda Express in the Grossmont Shopping Center about 8:30 p.m., Saturday, when two teen girls came up behind her, police said.

One of the girls grabbed the phone, but the woman held onto it and a struggle ensued, police said.

The girls hit the woman in the face and ran off, empty-handed toward the Grossmont Trolley Station, police said.

Police later arrested a 14-year-old El Cajon girl for attempted robbery and continued to search for a second girl. She was last seen wearing a light blue T-shirt, jean shorts and a gold purse.
