ALPHARETTA, Ga. — Police responded Jan. 2 to a shoplifting call in which one employee was hit by the suspects’ car.
The employee told police that three women and a man had shoplifted from the Party City on North Point Parkway and fled to a Chevrolet Malibu. When the employee attempted to stop the car by standing in its path, she was hit on one of her knees. She told police that she was not hurt.
The suspects then left the car and ran toward a nearby Verizon store. The employee was unsure if she later saw the suspects run into a white car and leave.
Police recovered the Chevrolet Malibu, but it was unclear who the driver was. Party City employees were able to recover the merchandise the suspects attempted to steal.
The car was associated with a similar incident earlier that day at the Macy’s in North Point Mall.
