Towson Mall Thief Strikes Employee with Car

A thief hit a Pac Sun employee with a car after she stole a shirt from the Towson Town Center store, Baltimore County police said.

At around 7:55 p.m. Thursday, Pac Sun employees observed the thief, described as a 5-foot-4-inch woman in her 20s who weighs about 140 pounds with black hair and brown eyes, tuck a shirt from the store underneath the shirt she was wearing, said Cathleen Batton, a police spokeswoman. The woman left the store without paying, and the employees followed her while calling mall security.

One employee stood behind the woman's 2000 white Volvo to prevent her from leaving the store, Batton said. The thief then backed up her vehicle, striking the employee. She nearly hit the employee again when she turned her vehicle to leave to scene.

The employee, who was not seriously injured, refused medical treatment, police said.

The thief was last seen heading toward Fairmont Avenue.
