DEARBORN — Three women involved in a pepper spray assault Sept. 4 at Wal-Mart have been identified, police said. Investigators are working to determine what charges, if any, will be filed.

Police were called to Wal-Mart, 5851 Mercury Drive, on a report of an assault. They spoke to the victim, a 35-year-old Pinckney woman, who said she got into an argument with two women.

The argument escalated into an assault when a third woman walked up from behind the victim and struck her in the head. As the victim fell forward, the third woman pepper-sprayed the victim in the face.

The three women then fled the store. The victim suffered minor injuries from the pepper spray.

The Police Department is asking the public’s assistance in capturing the suspects. People with information are asked to call 313-943-2241, or if they wish to remain anonymous, they can call Crime Stoppers at 800-SPEAK UP.

“This type of behavior will not be tolerated in Dearborn,” Police Chief Ronald Haddad said.
