Store security officers ran down by shoplifters www.privateofficer.com
But the other suspects drove a black sport utility vehicle at the guards, injuring both and crashing into the Macy’s building before all four fled in a wild scene Wednesday just before 3:30 p.m.
Nassau County police are searching for three men and one woman, all believed to be in their late teens or early 20s, police said. Police said the woman was “visibly pregnant.”
Police said the four were seen on store security cameras working together to steal clothing from Macy’s. As the four met up in the parking lot, the guards confronted a man who had store merchandise, and placed a handcuff on him.
That was when someone drove the SUV at the guards, hitting one and smashing into the side of the Macy’s building. The other guard was injured when he jumped out of the way. The handcuffed man then jumped into the vehicle, which already had the other three suspects, and all fled.
The guards were taken to a hospital and treated for what police called “minor injuries.” The crash caused an estimated $3,000 worth of damage to the Macy’s, police said.
Anyone with information can call Crime Stoppers at 800-244-TIPS. All calls will remain confidential, police said.
