Police hot on the scent of alleged cologne capers who assaulted clerk
OKLAHOMA CITY – Authorities say they are searching for a group of women after they allegedly stole dozens of bottles of perfume from a local store and injured a worker at another business.
On Tuesday evening, officers were called to Ulta, located on Memorial Rd., after the manager claimed two women stole several bottles of perfume from the store.
The manager says one of the women purchased one bottle of Gucci perfume and signed up for a rewards card.
They left with their purchase without paying for the 24 bottles still in their purses.
Officials estimate the perfume bottles cost about $1,700.
The women were seen leaving the store in a gray or blue 2013 Mazda with Kansas license plate “525GFD.”
A short time before that crime, police rushed to the Ulta, located on S.W. 3rd St., after they say the same alleged suspects attempted to steal from that store.
According to the police affidavit, a worker said three women came into the store and started trying to hide items.
The victim says she confronted the women, who claimed they had already put the items down and started to leave.
Officers say the worker followed them to get a license plate number when one of the women allegedly grabbed her phone and pushed her to the ground.
According to the report, the victim got up, only to be pushed down again.
The suspects got into the same vehicle and left.
Authorities say the victim suffered minor scrapes and bruises during the assault.
Sgt. Jennifer Wardlow, with the Oklahoma City Police Department, said, “We see what they’re doing. Obviously, bold to do this twice in one day. Again, assaulting people at one point, so we want to get them caught.”
One suspect is described as a black woman, 25 to 27-years-old, standing 5’3″ tall and weighing 130 pounds.
