HCSO: Violent shoplifter attacked employees at shoe store

The Harris County Sheriff's Office released video of a woman they say attacked employees at a shoe store after they stopped her from shoplifting.

Investigators say three shoplifters entered a Famous Footwear store in the 19900 block of the Katy Freeway on March 20, 2018. Loss prevention officers told Harris County investigators that two of the shoplifters left the shore with shoes and ran away.

Deputies say store employees were able to stop the third shoplifter and took the shoes from her. That's when investigators say she became angry and began to attack the employees.

HCSO says the woman fled from the store to a black Ford Explorer with yellow paint along the right rear bumper area. The woman is described as a black female, 5'6" to 5'7" in height and weighing between 240 to 250 pounds.

Anyone with information on the woman is asked to call the HCSO Robbery unit at (713)274-9234.
