Smash-And-Grab Robbers Steal Purses at Westfield Topanga Nordstrom Store

A security guard was pepper sprayed during a smash-and-grab robbery at the Nordstrom store at the Westfield Topanga mall in Canoga Park Wednesday evening.

A group of at least five men, one wearing an orange wig, entered the store at about 7 p.m. and stole seven or eight purses before fleeing the scene and jumping into a newer model gray Ford Mustang that sped away from the scene, according to reports from ABC7 and KCAL9.

The security guard was pepper sprayed during the robbery and was taken to a hospital for treatment, though no further details were immediately available.
