A police report shows two women entered the store at 14710 E. Indiana Ave, both carrying oversized purses.
A store employee witnessed the women take items into dressing rooms, but exit with out them, a report shows. The women then tried to leave the store, but were stopped by an employee who asked for the items to be returned.
One woman continued to try to leave and a scuffle broke out between here and the employee, the report said, noting the employee suffered minor injuries.
The scuffle elevated the alleged crime of shoplifting to robbery, Keyser said.
