A cashier in a Magazine Street shop was thrown to the ground last week while trying to prevent a shoplifting incident.

Second District officers are searching for four unknown suspects, pictured above, after their alleged involvement in the simple robbery.

The victim told police that on Feb. 12 at 2:50 p.m., she was working as a cashier at a business in the 5500 block of Magazine Street when three women and a man entered the business. Two of the women reportedly stayed at the front of the store while the man and another woman proceeded to the back of the store.

The reporting person told police that she observed the male with multiple pieces of merchandise in his hand. The subjects reportedly ran toward the door, at which time the cashier followed them and attempted to retrieve the merchandise. The man reportedly grabbed the victim by the neck and threw her to the ground while the women fled the scene.

The four fled the scene in a red Volkswagen Jetta, bearing temporary tag 18210590.

Anyone with any information regarding the pictured subjects’ whereabouts should contact Second District detectives at 504-658-6020. Citizens with information that can help solve crimes are asked to call Crimestoppers at 504-822-1111 or toll-free at 877-903-STOP.
