LA MESA (CNS) - Officers searched Wednesday for two young women who roughed up a 16-year-old girl while robbing her of a cell phone and wallet as she waited at a bus stop, police said.
The robbery in the 8100 block of Allison Avenue was reported about 7:50 p.m. Tuesday but occurred about three hours earlier, the La Mesa Police Department reported.
The 16-year-old victim told investigators she was waiting for a bus when she was approached by two women between 21 and 24 years old. One of the women grabbed the teen's cell phone and wallet while the other punched the girl several times in the face, police said.
The teen suffered abrasions and some bruising from the attack, according to police.
The women were last seen walking southbound toward a trolley stop. Police described one of them as black, about 5 feet 9, with a thin build and neck-length black hair. The other was described as black, roughly 5 feet 1, with a heavy build, short black hair and purple bangs.
Anyone with information about the robbery was urged to call La Mesa police at (619) 667-1400.
