BRENTWOOD, MO (KTVI) – Brentwood authorities are asking for the public’s help in identifying a group of female shoplifters who assaulted an employee at a children’s clothing store.
Security video shows the incident as it unfolded at Carter’s children clothing store at The Promenade in Brentwood. The women entered the store roughly a minute apart from each other around 7:30 p.m. on Friday, March 4.
Police said the suspects picked out more than two dozen pieces of baby clothing and headed for the door. Security video shows an employee unsuccessfully attempt to prevent the group from leaving. The trio is seen pushing the clerk outside the store, where police said she was sprayed with a chemical “irritant.”
The women dropped the clothing at the scene and fled. Employees can be seen on the surveillance video reentering the store with the merchandise.
The group of suspects was last seen leaving the scene in either a purple or maroon-colored sedan with Illinois license plates.
Anyone who can help identify the suspects should contact the Brentwood Police Department at 314-963-8669.
