Hillsborough County deputies are looking for a woman they say battered a mall security guard inside a Victoria’s Secret store at the Citrus Park Town Center last week.

  • Woman sought for battery of mall security guard
  • Guard told woman to leave because store was closing
  • Deputies say she hit the guard in the face with a pair of pants

On July 7, deputies say the woman gave employees a hard time when they asked her to leave because the store was closing.

A mall security guard responded and told the woman she had to leave.

Deputies say while leaving the store the woman expressed her agitation by using a pair of Victoria's Secret Pink brand pants to hit the guard on the left side of his face. She then fled the mall through the main south exit.

The guard was in full uniform, with a badge, and he was acting in an official capacity at the time of the incident, according to deputies.

The suspect is described as a black female, 5'6", approximately 200 lbs., wearing a white tank top with "USA" on front and blue jean shorts.

Anyone with any information is asked to call the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office at 813-247-8200.
