TACOMA, Wash. -- A Tacoma Nordstrom employee was injured when two thieves punched and pushed her down while trying to flee after stealing over $5,000 worth of designer purses.
Surveillance cameras caught the two men as they walked into the store and began grabbing purses before fleeing.
“To actually go forward and assault the clerk, who is just trying to do her job, it escalates from shoplifting up to robbery,” Detective Larry Andren with Tacoma Police said.
Surveillance cameras throughout the mall captured images of the men as they appeared to case an escape route down a deserted hallway into Nordstrom.
