Montgomery County police are searching for three suspects who attacked and pepper sprayed two employees inside a beauty supply store while they were trying to steal wigs from the business.
In surveillance video released by police, one of the suspects is seen taking a wig off of a mannequin near the entrance of the store. As that was happening, two store employees, a 74-year-old man and a 59-year-old woman, attempted to stop the theft as a struggle ensued.
As the male employee was blocking the exit, he was pepper sprayed while two of the suspects used a key to unlock the door and flee from the beauty store.
Meanwhile, a fight breaks out between the male employee and the remaining suspect still inside the store trying to escape. Eventually, the suspect is eventually able to get out of the store. However, he comes back to the entrance and kicks at the employees in order to grab the wig on the ground before getting away.
Both store workers were taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. The male employee suffered a laceration to his head, police said.
