WEST WHITELAND >> The West Whiteland Town­ship Po­lice Depart­ment is in­ves­ti­gat­ing an in­ci­dent that oc­curred at ap­prox­i­mately 7:15 p.m. Thurs­day.

The in­ci­dent oc­curred at the Zu­miez store lo­cated in­side of the Ex­ton Square Mall. A fe­male em­ployee of Zu­miez con­tacted the po­lice and re­ported that she was as­saulted by two shoplift­ing sus­pects.

The em­ployee stated that she had ob­served two fe­males in the store that she sus­pected of steal­ing cloth­ing. The em­ployee fol­lowed the sub­jects out of the store and ap­proached them in front of the Vic­to­ria’s Se­cret store.

The two fe­males re­port­edly ran to­ward the area of the Char­lotte Russe store. The em­ployee fol­lowed the sub­jects and made con­tact with them again. It was at this time that one of the sub­jects re­port­edly struck the em­ployee in the chest and face. The two sus­pects then ran off and ex­ited the mall with the mer­chan­dise.

Both sus­pects were de­scribed as African-Amer­i­can fe­males be­tween the ages of 20 and 30. The first sus­pect was re­ported to be tall and thin and was wear­ing a head wrap and glasses. The sec­ond fe­male was re­ported to be shorter than the first fe­male and had long, wavy hair.

In­ves­ti­ga­tors would like to speak to any­one that wit­nessed the en­counter, in­clud­ing any wit­nesses that may have recorded the in­ci­dent on their cell­phones. Any­one with in­for­ma­tion is asked to call 610-363-0200 or 610-692-5100.
