A Citizen Patrol could drive around that parking lot....just eyes and ears for the law....not vigilante stuff. A visual presence of any kind will keep these cowards away.

I agree Kyla, those monsters are going to mess with the wrong woman one of these days. Even a baseball bat upside their heads should do the trick!

Deena, it's at the point now where I feel the safest thing a woman shopping Grossmont can do is slip her money and/or credit cards in her bra/shoe and not have a purse at all. I have decided I'm not going to do that and I'm also not going to plead with my brawny husband to shop there with me purely for safety's sake. He hates shopping and I really prefer to shop on my own. I hope Grossmont management is reading our comments. It's only a few minutes further for me to go to Mission Valley or Parkway Plaza and until something is done, that's what I'll be doing. The purse snatching and other violence in the parking lots has gotten way out of hand.

Yes, F. Dunn, it's pretty sad but that is the fact isn't it? Consider Grossmont Center as a "No Purse Zone". But I do love Kyla's tazer suggestion.
