Newly released video of La Mesa robbery suspects

Posted: Updated:

LA MESA (CBS 8) - La Mesa police are hoping that newly released surveillance video will help identify two robbery suspects.

Two women are suspected of strong-arming two other women near a La Mesa trolley station in September, taking their cell phones.

"The two victims were travelling on the trolley, and it's believed the suspects were also travelling on the trolley. When the victims got off the trolley, the suspects followed them a short distance behind and then approached them from behind and began to beat them up and stole their cell phones, then took off running," La Mesa PD Lt. Matt Nicholass said.

The victims suffered minor injuries in the attack.

The robbers were last seen fleeing back toward the Amaya Street trolley station.

If you have any information, you're encouraged to call La Mesa police.
