Woman attacked and robbed in Pico Rivera

PICO RIVERA — Two men punched a woman in the face to steal her cell phone early Thursday, officials said.
The violent robbery took place just before 2:20 a.m. at Rosemead and Whittier boulevards, Los Angeles County sheriff’s Lt. Andrew Meyer said.
A 41-year-old Pico Rivera woman was walking north along Rosemead Boulevard when she was approached from an unknown direction by two men, the lieutenant said.
“One suspect punched her in the face and she fell to the ground,” Meyer said. The robbers proceeded to pull the woman’s cell phone from her purse before running off.
The woman had redness to her face but declined to be taken to a hospital, Meyer added.
The robbers were Latino men in their early-20s, of average build, between 5 feet 7 inches and 5 feet 9 inches tall, Meyer said. One wore a black baseball cap.
