She’s accused of stealing meat and wine from the Fred Meyer on Lake City Way on June 2nd — stuffing it into the suitcase you see in her left hand — then going crazy on a loss prevention officer when confronted outside the store.
“She hauls off, takes a fist and smacks him in the face, at least 10 times, according to the report. He does have scratches on his neck from where she latched onto him during the tussle. Bruises on his face. He`s able to retrieve the items out of the suitcase,” said Ret. Det. Myrle Carner with Crime Stoppers of Puget Sound. “If you now who this lady is, or more importantly, if you`re the person who did this, you better turn yourself in, because we will find you.”
Detectives think she’s in her 30’s or 40’s and notice the brown streak in her hair above her ear.
The photo of her was taken after the attack, so she could still have the green suitcase, or black and lime backpack with her.
