LITTLE ROCK, Arkansas (KARK) – For the past 20 some years, Youmi has been in the business of selling hair and she’s never seen anything quite like this.
She said, “And they come in here one minute and try to take everything of mine.”
Youmi says a group of nine girls, one carrying a baby, stormed her store looking for hair extensions but not planning to pay for the merchandise.
“Eight to nine teenagers came in, young children came in,” she said.
In surveillance video, you can see the ladies gathered around a display, looking at the hair.
Youmi says at some point, the girls opened up empty purses and shoved the expensive extensions inside.
She said, “Two girls just pushed me everywhere. I mean, I’m so nervous. I’ve never had this problem here.”
Then, the girls took off running, knocking over everything in their way.
Youmi said, “I tried to grab and punch them and they’re younger and faster. I’m 51.”
The suspects jumped in a car and sped off.
Youmi says they stole $1,000 worth of merchandise.
She did report the crime to police and it’s under investigation.
