A woman fought off her attackers during an attempted purse snatching.
She was shopping around noon Saturday at the Payless shoes on SPID near Greenwood Drive.
That's when she says she was approached by a male and a female outside the store and they tried to take her purse.
That's when the fight was on.
JoAnn Rojas says she fought the two attackers for control of her purse, with her money and cell phone inside.
As the attackers tried to get her purse into their car, JoAnn held tough and wasn't going to let them have it.
The getaway car started driving, with JoAnn dragging along the side, still holding on to her purse. After a few feet, her attackers let go of the purse, and JoAnn with it.
She suffered some scrapes on her elbow and her cell phone got away, but she feels thankful she wasn't hurt as the robbery occurred in front of her grandchild.
Police are looking for a three teens, one male and two females, who got away in a tan full-size Buick.
