Police searching for thieves in violent Toys 'R' Us robbery

Two thieves attempting to steal $150 worth of baby formula from a California Toys 'R' Us on Saturday assaulted an employee, slammed a teenage girl into a wall and violently shoved an 11-year-old girl as they made their escape, police said.

The 11-year-old girl was pushed 15 feet and landed on her head, FOX40 reported. She suffered major injuries and was taken to a hospital. Her current condition is unknown.

“If it’s for a good reason, it still doesn’t justify,” Janet Wright, a Toys 'R' Us shopper, told FOX40. “The ends doesn’t justify the means.”

The women, who have not yet been identified, entered the store with a duffel bag around 2:15 p.m., according to the Vallejo Police Department. After a store manager approached, the two began attacking employees and customers in an effort to get away.

The motive for the theft is unclear.
