A group of teen's attempt to rob a woman at a local Starbucks didn't turn out the way they hoped. 

The incident happened Monday night at the Starbucks on Staples and SPID.

Following a brief chase, the suspects bailed out of the car and took off running.

Fortunately, no one was injured during the chase and police recovered the stolen purse.

Officers also arrested two teen girls, ages 15 and 16.
