Police are looking for two women responsible for a robbery at a Burlington store during the Black Friday sales.

The robbers sprayed store members with a chemical agent as the staff tried to stop them leaving the store at Northtown Mall in Blaine with baskets full of merchandise.

The incident happened around 9 p.m. on Black Friday, Nov. 29.

Video from store surveillance cameras shows a staff member fall over after being sprayed in the face. Police say that one employee had to be hospitalized after the incident.

While the employees recovered from being sprayed and checked on the condition of the staffer on the floor, the women re-entered the store and reclaimed their purses and stolen property.

Police have released the footage in the hope of identifying the pair. Those with information should call 763-427-1212.
