Kohl's employee assaulted during robbery

- Police are searching for two men they say attempted to steal hundreds worth of merchandise from a Kohl's in Montgomery County. Officers also say one of suspects punched a store employee as they left the store.

It happened at the Kohl's on Welsh Road on Jan. 31, around 1:23 p.m.

Police say the men attempted to leave the store without paying for three JBL Pulse 2 speakers and perfume. As they
were leaving the store some of the merchandise fell out of their bag.

The suspects then fled in a Toyota Yaris.

The first suspect is described as a black male with a beard and wearing a black and white hat with a Chevrolet symbol on the front and a blue sweater with brown elbow patches.
