Woman wanted in alleged pepper spray incident at Laval Dollarama

Laval police are hoping the public can help to identify a suspected thief.

Police say the woman was spotted shoplifting at a Dollarama in Chomedey last October and when a security guard tried to intervene, she pepper sprayed him in the face and then assaulted him.  

She also allegedly pepper sprayed a customer as she fled the store.

The suspect is a Caucasian woman, approximately 27 years old, and speaks with an accent. 

She stands 5’5, weighs 135 lbs, and has auburn hair and a facial piercing. 

At the time of the incident, she was wearing a black jacket, dark pants, and black and white shoes.
