Woman Pepper Sprays 4 Employees At Academy Sports + Outdoors In White Settlement


Authorities in White Settlement, Texas, are searching for a woman who is said to have pepper sprayed a manager and three workers at an Academy Sports + Outdoors store.

The incident happened, close to 5 p.m. Wednesday inside the store located in the 1700 block of Cherry Lane, close to I-30.

Police Chief Chris Cook stated that the woman sprayed the four employees after the manager requested that she leave the store due to her showing behavior that was “consistent with previous thefts.”

“She became upset and pulled out pepper spray and sprayed the manager,” Cook stated. “Several employees came to help, and she sprayed them also before running out of the store.”

Cook added that the woman had “pushed a buggy full of clothes to the dressing room and staged it there while going to get another buggy.”

The woman fled the location in a white Nissan sedan. The four injured workers were treated by the White Settlement Fire Department. Fortunately, no one was hospitalized.

Authorities are looking to name the suspect. If found, she will be charged with four counts of assault.
