Police are seeking four women in the shoplifting of clothing from Victoria’s Secret, where a manager was sprayed in the face with some type of chemical as the women fled.

Police released a surveillance picture that shows four women, and officials are seeking help to identify them.

The women went into the store at Edgewater Mall on July 22, picked up several items and left without paying for them, police officer Michael Wheeler said Thursday.

One of them used a chemical spray to assault the manager, which could lead to an additional charge.

They left in a silver Hyundai Sonata, Wheeler said.

Anyone who can identify them is asked to call Wheeler at 228-702-3054 or the Biloxi Police Department’s Criminal Investigations Division at 228-435-6112.
