Police Looking For Women Who Assaulted, Robbed Beauty Supply Store Employee In Wynwood

What to Know

  • Police are looking for the four women who were caught on camera assaulting a Wynwood beauty store employee and robbing items.

Police in Florida say a woman squirted pepper spray in the eyes of a beauty supply store employee who was showing her pricey human hair extensions.

The woman grabbed the $450 package of hair extensions while three other women grabbed more extensions before running from J & C Beauty Supply store near 26th Street and Northwest 5th Avenue.

Miami police on Wednesday released surveillance video from the store in an effort to identify the suspects. The footage also shows one of the women grabbing a cellphone before shoving the employee.

The store’s owner says he's hoping police capture the women, adding that he's had people steal from him before but “never like this.'' Anyone with information is asked to call Miami-Dade CrimeStoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
