Police in Los Angeles are looking for a suspect caught on surveillance video trying to rob an 18-year-old girl.

Jane Santamaria, a 4'11", 110-pound woman relentlessly tried to fight off her 180-pound attacker. The suspect punched her in the face several times, knocking her to the floor and got away with her phone.

Police say Jane's instinct to fight was not wise. They say victims should give up their property and not risk injury or death. Jane says she learned a lesson and admits she should not have fought and knows things could have been much worse.
