Three women are facing multiple charges after police say the group shoplifted from a Wilmington-area Dick's Sporting Goods and lead police on a chase that crossed state lines.

Delaware State Police were dispatched to the store on the 1000 block of Brandywine Boulevard around 6:30 p.m. Friday for reports of a robbery.

Police say 20-year-old Destine Williams, 22-year-old Andrea Jackson-Deloatch, and 22-year-old Raniyah T. Knight fled the store with unpaid merchandise. When store employees confronted the women, police say Knight pepper-sprayed a 53-year-old man and a 30-year-old woman. The male employee required medical attention and was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment.

All three women face a host of charges including a second-degree felony charge of conspiracy. Williams was released on $5,000 bail, while Knight and Jackson-Deloatch were committed to Delores J. Baylor Womens Correctional Institution.
