According to police, the women didn’t pay attention to the security guard until they had no other choice. He started taking the unpurchased DVDs back out of their cart. At that point, they began shouting at and attacking him, then escaping in their SUV.
The guard apparently didn’t suffer any injuries, but the two attackers did tear his hoodie.
The car that the two women ran for had, you know, license plates. The ace security guard wrote down the license plate number, and police apprehended the women. They now face charges of strong-arm robbery, because “violence against hoodies” is not, strictly speaking, a crime. People, yes: articles of clothing, no.
