Around 6:30 p.m., the three women shown above entered the store at the Waldorf Astoria and collected an estimated $12,000 worth of purses according to a police report. A security guard who confronted the crew was pepper sprayed and punched in the face by the offender seen wearing a blue hat, police said in a community alert.
The three then left the store southbound on Rush Street and escaped in a black vehicle.
