A woman made quite a spectacle just to steal some spectacles.

A woman was robbed of her glasses during a scuffle in Union Square on Monday, police Officer Albie Esparza said.

The 47-year-old victim was handing out pamphlets on the corner of Geary and Powell streets about 8:55 p.m. when she was approached by a woman aged between 30 and 40 years old, Esparza said. The two women were soon involved in an argument that turned physical.

The suspect then grabbed the victim's prescription eye glasses and fled the scene, Esparza said. No arrest has been made.

The victim did not sustain serious injury during the fight and no further description of the suspect was available.
