Towson Mall Thief Strikes Employee with Car

Pac Sun employees followed the woman after she stole a shirt from the store, police said.

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.

I think the real story is the actions of the store employee and the fact this woman would run a person over to get away. There are plenty of thefts in Towsontown so the shoplifting is not really a story.

Ms. Davis, You are mistaken about that policy if you have the same managing editor as Pikesville Patch's editor, Ms. Metzner. She informed her readers last month that that policy was changed by her manager, and in the future Patch will disclose a suspect's race when it is included in a police report as described by witnesses. You guys really need to get your act together.

instead of standing behind the vehicle, why not call 911 and report the description and tag #? If you're going to be ballsy enough to follow them and try to prevent them from leaving, why not just confront them about it?!

There are a bunch of Kids working in Pac Sun. I am sure the employee did WHAT THEY THOUGHT was the appropriate action. An adult would think twice before duplicating the employees tactic. You can bet all the Kids working in Pac Sun have been advised (if not re-advised) on how to handle this situation in the future.
