According to police, around 3 p.m. on April 13, the elderly woman was walking to her car, which was parked in the parking garage, when she was approached by the four suspects. The two male and two female juveniles demanded the woman's keys and when she refused, one of the male suspects punched her.
The suspects then fled the scene.
The victim then got in her car and drove through the parking lot until she was able to flag down a Galleria Security Officer who then called police.
The victim suffered only minor injuries.
