The following is a summary of recent incident reports made to the Highland Village Police Department as compiled by the staff of The CTG:
On March 15 about 6:30 p.m., police responded to a reported assault at The Shops at Highland Village. A woman said she lost her wallet in Victoria’s Secret and accused two other shoppers who had a child in a stroller of stealing it. The woman followed them outside and confronted them while they were trying to load the toddler into their vehicle. The shoppers told police that the woman was aggressive and spitting at them, and one of them pushed the woman to keep her away from her and her child. The agitated woman reported that her knee was scraped as a result of the push. After the incident, the woman’s wallet and car keys were found inside Victoria’s Secret and nothing was missing. Nonetheless, she took to social media after the incident to accuse the shoppers of shoplifting and felony assault, as well as to complain about a witness who supposedly took a video of the incident.
