Two women attacked another woman with pepper spray and grabbed her purse in the parking lot of Ridgmar Mall in Fort Worth.

The victim told NBC 5 she had just finished working at the mall Tuesday evening and was in her car in front of Macy's getting ready to leave.

Two women approached her asking for directions when one suddenly pulled out pepper spray and sprayed her in the face, she said.

They grabbed her purse, jumped in a black Dodge Neon without any license plates and sped off, she said.

Her credit card was used hours later at a gas station and a discount store in Dallas, she said.

Fort Worth robbery detectives are investigating.
