Officers with the La Mesa Police Department have released video-surveillance photos of two suspects in a strong-arm robbery on a trolley last month and are asking the public for assistance in identifying the pair.
Police Lt. Matt Nicholass reports that on the afternoon of October 25, police were called to the intersection of Campina Drive and Amaya Drive, where they encountered two college-aged exchange students from Korea suffering from minor injuries after both were struck in the face and robbed of their mobile phones.
The suspects, described as two black teenaged females, were last seen running toward the Amaya trolley station. Yesterday (November 25), police obtained and released tape from MTS showing the suspects boarding the trolley at the Amaya station.
Anyone with information is encouraged to contact police at 619-667-1400 or Crime Stoppers at 888-580-TIPS with anonymous tips. A $1000 reward is being offered for information leading to an arrest.
