A woman was attacked outside The Woodlands Mall Friday afternoon. She says she was targeted by purse snatchers, according to the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office. It happened around 4pm. The 38-year-old femal victim tells investigators she was walking in the parking area north of Macy's when a small dark-colored car stopped behind her. That's when she says the passenger of the vehicle grabbed her purse and pushed her to the ground. The suspects then took off.

The victim went into the mall and reported the incident to security. She suffered minor scratches.

The suspects are described as Hispanic males in their late teens or early twenties driving a small dark car with a pink design on the hood and fenders.
