CINCINNATI - A trio behind a robbery at a downtown upscale store have yet to be caught.
Police say two women and a man entered the Saks Fifth Avenue store on West Fifth Street Friday and stole several purses.
When a store employee tried to stop them, the man allegedly struck the worker, knocking her to the ground. Police say she suffered some scrapes and cuts from the incident.
Authorities believe the same group are behind a similar theft on July 18.
The suspects are described as a stocky built black male about 200 pounds between the ages of 30 and 40, a black female about 300 pounds between the ages of 25 and 30 and another black female also between 25 and 30 years old about 150 pounds.
Police say the three got away in a dark blue or royal blue Toyota Solara convertible with the partial Ohio license plate EZT.
Anyone with information on this robbery are asked to call police at (513) 352-5442.
