SAN DIEGO -- A woman was stabbed near the Bloomingdale's at Fashion Valley mall late Wednesday afternoon, San Diego Police confirm.

The woman turned around and saw the man walking away. She chased him through the parking lot onto Friars Road but lost him by the time he reached the State Route 163 off-ramp, according to police.

The suspect was described as a white man in his early 30's, about 6-feet tall with light brown hair and either green or blue eyes. He was wearing a green shirt and brown pants.

The woman was taken to a hospital with a non-life-threatening stab wound to her right shoulder blade, police said.

Officers said no arrests have been made in the case.
