A La Mesa woman was robbed at gunpoint at about 12:43 p.m. Sunday at Grossmont Center Mall, according to police.
The victim was walking to her vehicle in the south parking lot of the Macy's store when the three suspects drove alongside her and the passenger grabbed her purse. When the victim refused to let go of her purse, the passenger pointed a semi-auto handgun at the victim, according to police.
The victim—who was slightly brusied on her left arm—let go of the purse fearing for her safety, according to police.
The three suspects are described as black males between the age of 20 to 25. The front passenger had cornrows. They were in a white four-door Nissan Sentra, according to police.
