Workers at b.a. Sweetie Candy Company Inc. were pepper sprayed during an attempted theft at the shop last week.

According to a police report, a man and woman entered the store on Aug. 7 and started putting candy in the woman's purse.

When employees confronted the pair, there was a struggle but the workers were able to get the candy back.

As some of the workers were trying to detain the woman, she sprayed them with pepper spray she had on her keychain. 

The man and the woman were able to get away in a Gold Nissan Maxima but workers said they got a clear view of the license plate on the car. 

Police are still looking for the suspects. If you have any information, contact Crime Stoppers at 216-252-7463.
