(KRON) — A Berkeley woman was arrested after she allegedly pepper-sprayed a Sausalito Target security guard while committing a robbery on Monday, the Marin County Sheriff’s Office said.
The incident happened at about 10:12 a.m. at the Target located at 180 Donahue Street. MCSO deputies learned that the suspect walked out of the store pushing a shopping cart loaded with items.
According to MCSO, security confronted the woman, asking her to pay for the goods. That’s when she allegedly pulled out the pepper spray and sprayed a guard in the face.
“The suspect took the stolen items to her car where they were loaded in the trunk,” MCSO said. “She entered her vehicle and sped off at a high rate of speed, nearly striking pedestrians.”
The suspect dropped her cell phone at Target, and police used a search warrant to find the identity of the owner. Eaquoiya Scott, 22, of Berkeley was arrested.
