Search on for suspected shoplifters who tried to hit Kohl’s employee with car – The Santa Fe New Mexican.

Santa Fe police are asking for the public’s help in finding two women suspected of trying to run over the manager of Kohl’s department store after a shoplifting spree Saturday.

Sgt. Andrea Dobyns said the women, believed to be involved in about a dozen shoplifting outings at Kohl’s in November, were caught on one of the store’s surveillance cameras. They escaped with at least $200 in merchandise.

Dobyns said the store’s manager, Eduardo Gonzales, chased after the women into the store’s parking lot about 3:45 p.m., where one of them tried to mow him down with the getaway car, possibly a white four-door Infinity, New Mexico license 421 RLB.

Gonzales told police that the driver of the car “seemed very deliberate” and that he jumped out of the way. The driver will be charged with assault with a deadly weapon, Dobyns said.

Anyone with information about either of the two women is urged to call police dispatch at 428-3710.
