Police release photo of suspect in Boston Road Family Dollar robbery

Posted: Updated:

Police are on the hunt for a woman wanted in a violent robbery on Boston Road.

The incident unfolded at a Family Dollar store last month, and authorities say the suspect is still on the loose. Police released video showing the person they want to speak with.

On Nov. 20 around 7:30 p.m., police say a 23-year-old female employee noticed a woman trying to steal laundry detergent. When she tried to stop the theft, police say the suspect sprayed her in the face with an unknown substance.

The mystery spray caused redness and irritation, but the employee is OK and refused medical attention when police arrived.

The suspect subsequently took off and hasn't been seen since.

Anyone who recognizes the woman in the photo or may have information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
