TOLEDO (WTOL) - Toledo police have a warning for holiday shoppers: Be careful as you pick up those last minute gifts.

Officers are investigating two incidents that happened near the Westfield-Franklin Park mall. One happened outside of Kohls, and the other happened between Dick's Sporting Goods and National City Bank.

Police say two teenage girls were attacked Saturday night by two women in an SUV. The suspects hit one of the girls with what is thought to be a metal pipe and stole their purses and purchases.

A few minutes later a woman was attacked in the Kohl's parking lot, but she was able to scare the suspects away with a panic alarm.


Police are looking for a green or dark colored Jeep or SUV. The attackers are described as two black women in their 20s. One of them is skinny, around 5' 5" tall and has shoulder length hair that curls up at the end.
